Carrie Yamaoka

Part-Time Lecturer

Carrie Yamaoka is a visual artist working in the expanded field of painting. Exhibiting widely in the US and Europe since the 1980s, Yamaoka’s work has been featured in Greater New York 2015 at MoMA/PS1, and in exhibitions at the Mannheimer Kunstverein, CAN Neuchatel, MMKA, the Wexner Center, the Albright-Knox, MassMOCA and Artists Space among other venues. Roberta Smith of the New York Times has written: “her efforts intimate a rejuvenation of Minimalism, spurred by new materials, more refined techniques and fresh ideas.” Ken Johnson, also in the New York Times, called her work “ a seductive marriage of voluptuous materialism and rigorous formalism.” She is a founding member of the queer art collective fierce pussy.
