Assistant Professor of Fine Arts, School of Art, Media, and Technology
Selena Kimball is a visual artist based in Brooklyn, New York. Working primarily in collage, she destroys printed documentary evidence, physically re-working visual histories into constructed surfaces and installations. This process of taking apart and putting back together is a search for the abstract, tactile, oddness often hidden in both the content and the appearance of these printed histories. Her work has been shown at Feature Inc., Parlour, and Participant, Inc. in New York, The Portland Museum of Art, Yautepec Gallery in Mexico City, The Soap Factory in Minneapolis, The Center for Contemporary Art, Warsaw, and The Museum of the Romanian Peasant, Bucharest. She is represented by Wolfstaedter Gallery, Frankfurt, Germany.Selena Kimball earned her BFA in sculpture from The Rhode Island School of Design and her MFA in combined media from Hunter College. She has collaborated for over a decade with visual anthropologist Alyssa Grossman on films that have been shown at documentary film festivals internationally. Her published work can be seen in the collage novel "The Dreaming Life of Leonora de la Cruz", which was produced together with writer and art historian Agnieszka Taborska (Gdansk 2004, slowo/obraz teryrtoria; New York 2007, Midmarch Arts Press; Paris 2007, dition Interf_rences). Their most recent book The Unfinished Life of Phoebe Hicks is due to be published by slowo/obraz teryrtoria in 2013.
