Andrea Bowers

Multidisciplinary Artist

Los Angeles, California

Working in a variety of media, Andrea Bowers mines the intersection between political activism and art. She is interested in the role of nonviolent protest and civil disobedience in the lives of women. She begins by conducting archival research on a topic, then creates photorealist drawings, videos, and/or performances that are more poignant than dogmatic. Bowers seeks to contextualize historical events (such as the struggle for reproductive rights) in relation to our contemporary situation.
