Visiting Artist | Amy Yoes
RISD’s Glass department welcomes multidisciplinary artist Amy Yoes, the final speaker in the Spring ’18 Lecture Series. Yoes alternately employs installation, photography, video, painting and sculpture, responding to formal topologies of ornament and style that have reverberated through time and inform our mutually constructed visual and cultural memory. Her videos and installations have been shown in such venues as the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; MASSMoCA, North Adams, MA; the Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, OH; and the Carpenter Center for the Arts, Cambridge, MA. She has been awarded residencies at the Maison Dora Maar, France; AIR, Austria; McDowell, US; Yaddo, US; and The British School at Rome, Italy. She teaches each fall at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Lecture series funded in part by the Page Hazlegrove Fund, Koichi Hamada and Carolyn M. Beaudin in memory of Kotaro Hamada.
