Lecture: "Nothing Means Anything"
Meredith Tromble is an artist and writer with a specialization in art, science, and technology. Her recent work in virtual installation, drawing, and performance involves creating situations for creative exchange and investigating forms of knowledge. Among her current projects is Art & Shadows—a series of essays on contemporary art in light of contemporary science, funded by a grant from the Arts Writing Initiative of the Andy Warhol Foundation.
From 2000–2010 Tromble worked with the artist group Stretcher, publishing an online magazine and orchestrating performative events, including an installation for Bay Area Now 4 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. Her own installations have been shown primarily in California at venues including the Mills College Art Museum, the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum, and the Mondavi Center at the University of California, Davis. She is the author of hundreds of papers, feature articles, and interviews, and her edited book on the artist Lynn Hershman Leeson was published by the University of California Press. Tromble is an Associate Professor in the School of Interdisciplinary Studies at SFAI. meredithtromble.net
