VISITING ARTIST AMY YAO

October 22 -- November 22, 2017

PUBLIC LECTURE

Tuesday, October 31 / 3-4pm

ART Building, UHM, room 101

TRADES A.i.R. is pleased to welcome its inaugural artist Amy Yao. Named by Artnet News as one of the "10 Most Exciting Artists in the United States Today," Yao will be in residence on O‘ahu from October 22 to November 22, 2017. "Yao's work spans virtually all mediums: painting, sculpture, photography, performance. But it's her objects… that offer a through-line in their crooked anthropomorphic qualities, suggesting serious jokes about contemporary life." (Kevin McGarry, T Magazine; August 19, 2014).

Amy Yao (b. 1977) lives and works in Los Angeles and New York City. She received her MFA in Sculpture in 2007 from Yale University School of Art, and BFA with Honors in 1999 from Art Center College of Design. She has taught at Princeton University and is currently a visiting artist in the Cal State University Long Beach Ceramics program. Her most recent solo exhibition Weeds of Indifference, at 47 Canal Gallery in New York City opened in September and was named a "critic's pick" by Art Forum. She has exhibited internationally, including at The Whitney Museum of American Art; MoMA P.S.1; Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris; and He Xiang Art Museum in Shenzhen, China.

TRADES A.i.R. program seeks to address the underrepresentation of contemporary art in the Hawaiian Islands by providing maximum community access and fostering arts appreciation locally. At the core of our mission is a Visiting Artist in Residence Program. TRADES aims to fund travel, lodging and studio space for selected national and international visiting artists. Committed to outreach, we are partnered with the Honolulu Museum of Art and the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Hawai‘i Mānoa. TRADES creates a round-trip circuit for contemporary art in the islands, with the introduction of offshore techniques and the exportation of local perspectives. TRADES was founded by Don Felix Cervantes and Aaron Wong in January 2016. A sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, our intended reach is to all Hawaiian Islands and to visiting artists worldwide.
