Chicago Athletic Association hotel and EXPO Art Week present a special talk with Chicago-born, Los Angeles-based artist, Amanda Ross-Ho.
The talk will center around the artist’s work which draws from a broad hierarchy of structures, mapping connectivity within the overlapping ecologies of personal and universal phenomena. Ross-Ho’s evolving personal language combines forensic and theatrical gestures, diagramming the reflexive relationships between production, presentation, and the social contracts of viewership. Her sculpture, painting, photography, installation, and public works have been exhibited widely, nationally and internationally. Ross-Ho’s talk will present a longview of her work over the last decade and a half, focusing on recent large scale, site specific installation, and public projects. She is an Assistant Professor of Sculpture at the University of California, Irvine. The talk will be available on Podcast in October here.
On view in the Lobby during the talk and during the month of October, September 27 – October 25 will be a very special presentation featuring one of Amanda Ross-Ho’s renowned large-scale T-Shirt works, in celebration of Mickey Mouse’s 90th Anniversary. The work pays homage to one of the world’s most widely recognized apparel items, the iconic Mickey Mouse t-shirt and long standing status in popular culture. We invite our guests to join us in the lobby after the talk to view the work and enjoy light refreshments from 6pm – 8pm. Learn More
