Join us live on Instagram from your cell phone, or watch on YouTube after, for a series of remote visits to artists' studios to bring Americas Society's Visual Arts public programs to your home. Every other Wednesday this month, contemporary artists will dialogue with our Visual Arts department about their work and practice.
About the artist:
Emily Shanahan is a visual artist working primarily with video and collage. Her interdisciplinary practice addresses issues of gendered labour and technology with special attention to the behaviors, gestures, and societal norms that circulate across media. She received an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts and completed the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program. She was awarded a summer fellowship from the Terra Foundation for American Art in Giverny, France and is the recipient of a Canada Council for the Arts Research and Creation grant. Her first artist book, The Tick vs. the Hum, was published by Golden Spike Press and is held in the Whitney Museum Library collection. Her most recent artist book, Work Life Harmony, was published by Sming Sming Books and is held in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art Library collection.
