Selena Kimball

Associate Professor, Co-Director BFA program

Selena Kimball is a visual artist whose work—large-scale photo-montage, sculptural installation, and book projects—focuses on how history is bound up with perceptions of place. Reworking this “geographic imaginary” through the use of primary sources like photographs and newspaper accounts, she often conducts site-based fieldwork in the physical landscapes they depict. She has exhibited at the Katonah Museum of Art, New York, the Portland Museum of Art in Maine, the Center for Contemporary Art, Warsaw, and the Museum of the Romanian Peasant, Bucharest. Her work has been reviewed in The Boston Globe, The New York Observer, and Frankfurter Allgemeine. Selena is a MacDowell Fellow, recipient of two Pollock-Krasner awards, a Jerome Foundation grant, a NYSCA/ NYFA grant and an Asian Cultural Council award. Long-time collaborations include films and installations with visual anthropologist Alyssa Grossman. Selena lives and works in New York City where she is co-founder, with Pascal Glissmann, of the Observational Practice Lab and Associate Professor of Contemporary Art Practice at Parsons, The New School.
