ANDREA BOWERS 

 

Born 1965 in Wilmington, OH

Lives and works in Los Angeles, CA

 

For Andrea Bowers, political engagement and artistic expression are inseparable. Her practice, which includes drawings, videos and installations addresses a wide range of relevant socio-political issues from women’s and worker’s rights to the arms industry, to immigration politics and the climate crisis. Storytelling is integral to Bower’s work and part of her activism consists of highlighting the narratives of resistance and rebellion.

 

Bowers has over the last 20 years gained an international reputation as a social activist and artist, with solo shows at major institutions such as Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (upcoming 2021); Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago (upcoming 2021); Museum Abteiberg, Mönchengladbach (2020); Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2017); Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati (2017); Bronx Museum, New York (2016); Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton, Paris (2014); Wiener Secession, Vienna (2007); The Power Plant, Toronto (2007). Bowers has also participated in recent group exhibitions at The High Line, New York (2018); Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt (2018); Documenta 14, Fridericianum, Kassel (2017); Triennale di Milano, Milan (2017); Aspen Art Museum, Aspen (2016); Albertina, Vienna (2015). Bowers’ work is held in the collections of The Hammer Museum of Art, Los Angeles, MoMA, New York, The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington DC, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and Museum Abteiberg, Mönchengladbach, Germany, among others.
