Amanda Taves explores states of perception using multi-sensory interdisciplinary projects. Focusing on the point at which the commonplace becomes uncanny, the photographs, videos, audio narrations, and investigative forensic procedures employed in her projects expose the history between object and action: the latent evidence of interaction. She frequently collaborates with forensic professionals, city officials, and community organizations in her practice. Prior to receiving her BFA in Photography from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Taves cultivated a visual literacy program at The Night Ministry and interned with Industry of the Ordinary. Her work has been curated by the New York Museum of Modern Art and she has participated as a panelist and visiting instructor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work has been exhibited nationally at venues including the Phoenix Museum of Art and Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art. Taves is the recipient of various awards including a Chicago Cultural Center CAAP Grant, Goldman Sachs Scholarship, and an Endsley Fellowship, among others. She currently resides in Chicago with her husband and parrot.
Sunday, October 20, the day following her artist talk, Taves will lead a short seminar on working collaboratively with a community to build out creative projects. More details to be announced soon…
