Teeny Tiny Woman
23 June – 7 October 2012
This new installation by Amanda Ross-Ho encompasses architectural elements, large-scale paintings, fabricated objects, textiles, and photographs created specifically for the MOCA Pacific Design Center. AMANDA ROSS-HO: TEENY TINY WOMAN evolves her continued interest in translation, scale, and the authored collapse of authentic gesture and performance. Her work interrogates intimate territories of experience, toggling between the context of production and the context of reception, to create an infinite loop of meaning.
AMANDA ROSS-HO: TEENY TINY WOMAN will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue, the most detailed appraisal of Ross-Ho's oeuvre to date, with an essay by exhibition curator Rebecca Morse; an interview between Ross-Ho and João Ribas, curator at MIT List Visual Arts Center; and an exhibition chronology.
Amanda Ross-Ho (b. 1975, Chicago) is a Los Angeles-based artist who received her MFA from the University of Southern California in 2006 and her BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago in 1998. Her work has been included in New Photography at The Museum of Modern Art (2010); Image Transfer: Pictures in a Remix Culture at the Henry Art Gallery (2010); and was the subject of a solo exhibition at the Pomona College Museum of Art titled Amanda Ross-Ho: The Cheshire Cat Principle (2010). Her work was also included in the Whitney Biennial (2008) and the Orange County Biennial (2008). This will be the artist's first museum exhibition accompanied by a catalogue.
