Amber Ginsburg was awarded a 2016 Curatorial Residency and National Performance Network supported special project.
Amber Ginsburg creates site-generated projects and social sculpture that insert historical scenarios into present day situations. Her background in craft orients her projects towards the continuities and ruptures in material, social, and utopic histories. Her work engages objects as collaborators, agent-provocateurs and narrative instigators.
Ginsburg’s research-based multimedia installations works have been shown in museums and galleries including: Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; The Soap Factory, Minneapolis, MN; The Society for Contemporary Craft, Pittsburg, PA; World Ceramic Biennale, Korea; KunstTREFFpunkt, Darmstadt, Germany; Artsonje, Seoul, Korea; Raid Projects, Los Angles, CA and the Bristol Biennial, England. Additionally, she is one of three editors of YoYoMagazine.org, an iterative online journal of arts, narrative and poetry.
Amber Ginsburg currently live in Chicago and is a lecturer in the Department of Visual Arts at The University of Chicago.
