Department of Art
present Andrea Bowers, multimedia artist, on Wednesday, October 8, 2014 at 7 p.m. in Argyros Forum, 209C. Bowers will lecture about her work as an internationally renowned artist and activist who promotes and supports empowerment for women, immigrants, and laborers.

Andrea Bowers is a Los Angeles based multimedia artist who explores the intersection between activism and art. Her main focus is the necessity of nonviolent protest and civil disobedience in the lives of women. Her intricate photorealist drawings, large-scale graphic works, videos and ephemera pay homage to activists and movements dedicated to social justice, feminisum, workers rights and climate justice.

Recently she has been incorporating aspects of social engagement and performativity into her practice. Bowers just completed a four-month residency at Espace Culture, Louis Vuitton in Paris, France. She exhibited in museums and galleries around the world. In September she participated in the Gwangiu Biennale, South Korea. She is represented by Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects, Andrew Kreps Gallery in New York, and Capitain Petzel Gallery in Berlin.

This event is free and open to the public.
