Visiting Assistant Professor
Amanda Curreri is an artist and educator currently living in Albuquerque, NM. Her work is interdisciplinary and dialogic: creating conversation between artworks, viewers, and within actual and constructed feminist, radical, and queer historiographies. Textiles have become important to her work for their ability to prompt discussions of labor, class, history, performance of identity, and use-value.
Curreri has recently exhibited at the Oakland Museum of California, Contemporary Arts Center (Cincinnati), Asian Art Museum (SF), Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (SF), Ortega y Gasset Projects (NY), Rochester Art Center (MN), and the Incheon Women’s Biennale, Korea. She is a recipient of a Traveling Scholars Fellowship from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (2017), a Summerfair Aid for Individual Artists grant (2017), a Joan Mitchell Foundation Fellowship (2009) and a SF Guardian Goldie Award (2010). Curreri co-directs a small-run artists press, Special Collections Press, in partnership with the arts library at the University of Cincinnati where she is an Assistant Professor in the School of Art. Curreri holds an MFA from the California College of the Arts, a BFA from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and a BA from Tufts University in Sociology and Peace & Justice Studies. Curreri is represented by Romer Young Gallery in San Francisco, California.
