Amanda Ross-Ho lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. Her work is inspired by detritus: the clutter and remnants of daily existence and the ‘negative space’ of things overlooked. Working in sculpture, installation, painting, and photography, her work seeks to uncover the subtle beauty of coincidence and anomaly in pursuit of the discovery of cultural intersections. Ross-Ho was included in the 2008 Whitney Biennial and was recently the subject of solo exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and the Pomona College Museum of Art.
The Critical Issues in Contemporary Art lecture series is held in conjunction with ART 361/595 (taught by Eric Fredericksen) and is sponsored by the Nebula Project of the University of Washington School of Art + Art History + Design with generous support from the College of Arts and Sciences, the Henry Art Gallery, and the New Foundation Seattle.
