Amy Yoes cuts, weaves, overlays, folds, records, and splices imagery in her paintings, photographs, sculptures, performances, and animations. She responds to formal topologies of ornament and style that have repeated and reverberated through time, tapping into a shared visual and cultural memory. Her installation Hot Corners is currently on view at MASS MoCA, North Adams, MA. She teaches at SAIC in the departments of Fiber and Material Studies, Sculpture, Photography, and Contemporary Practices.
Amy Yoes will talk about the multi-room installation Hot Corners, her most recent project, on view at MassMoca in North Adams MA. She will also discuss her earlier works and share ongoing sources and inspirations.
Made possible by the generous support of the William Bronson and Grayce Slovett Mitchell Lectureship in Fiber and Material Studies.
