Amalia Ulman

Studio grant holder in Göteborg 1 - 31 May 2018

Amalia Ulman
(b. 1989) is an artist with an office in downtown L.A. Born in Argentina and raised in Spain, she studied Fine Arts at Central Saint Martins in London. Her works, which are primarily voiced in the first person, blur the distinction between the artist and object of study, often creating humorous, gentle deceptions, while exploring class imitation and the relationship between consumerism and identity. In addition to video, sculpture and installation work, her multidisciplinary practice has involved the use of social media, magazine photoshoots, interviews, self-promotion and brand endorsements as tools for the fabrication of fictional narratives. Ulman’s performance “Excellences & Perfections” was archived by Rhizome and the New Museum (New York) and exhibited at the Tate Modern and the Whitechapel Gallery (London). Her most recent works are the video essay “Annals of Private History” (Frieze Live, 2015), and “Privilege” (online performance, 2016) and its subsequent solo shows: “Labour Dance” at Arcadia Missa (London), “Reputation” at New Galerie (Paris), “Dignity” at James Fuentes (New York), “Intolerance” at BARRO (Buenos Aires), “Monday Cartoons” at Deborah Schamoni (Munich), “Atchoum!” at Galerie Sympa (Figeac) and “NEW WORLD 1717” at Rockbund Art Museum (Shanghai).
