    The School of Art + Art History at the University of Florida is proud to present visiting artist Andrea Bowers on February 27, 2018, at 6 p.m. in Little Hall, Room 101 (LIT 101). The Spring 2018 Visiting Artists Lecture Series is free and open to the public. The lectures offer the community an important opportunity to engage in discussions about contemporary art and culture in relation to national and international trends.

    Andrea Bowers is an artist and activist based in Los Angeles. She makes drawings, video, sculpture, and installation work that foregrounds the experience of the people who dedicate their time and energy to the struggle for racial, environmental, labor, and immigration justice and those who are directly effected by systemic inequality. In 2017 Bowers had solo exhibitions at the Contemporary Art Center, Cincinatti, OH and the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA. Other recent solo exhibitions include: “Andrea Bowers: Sanctuary,” Bronx Museum; “Triumph of Labor,” Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects; “Whose Feminism is it Anyway?” Andrew Kreps Gallery. Her work was also included in the 2017 Triennale de Milano and Documenta 14.

    The Visiting Artist Lecture Series is sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, School of Art + Art History, and the Graduate Student Organization of Photography.
