Carrie Yamaoka

Part-Time Lecturer

Carrie Yamaoka’s work ranges across painting, text, drawing, sculpture and photography. She investigates issues of subjectivity, authorship, visibility and perception. Her working methods are centered on materiality and process. She embraces error and defect, the slippage of material protocols, negotiations with chance and the trajectories that follow from engaging in and then breaking the rules of process. Yamaoka has exhibited extensively in the US and in Europe: at MOMA/PS1, Centre Pompidou, the ICA Philadelphia, the Henry, Artists Space, the Wexner Center, the Albright-Knox, the Bronx Museum, among other venues; and is included in the collections of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Centre Pompidou, The Victoria & Albert Museum, and the Art Institute of Chicago. Yamaoka received an Anonymous Was a Woman Award in 2017 and a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship in 2019. Her work has been written about in Artforum, The New York Times, Time Out/ NY, Art in America, Interview and Hyperallergic. She is represented by Commonwealth and Council, Los Angeles. She is also a founding member of the queer art collective fierce pussy.
