    Profile

    Selena Kimball is a visual artist whose work—large-scale photomontage, installation, and book projects—examines visual perceptions of history by reimagining the photographic collections (archives, printed books, newspapers) that document these events. Her long-term collaborations include films and experimental research with visual anthropologist Alyssa Grossman. She has exhibited nationally and internationally including the Katonah Museum of Art, 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 New York Times, The Boston Globe, The New York Observer, and Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.  Selena is a recent recipient of the Pollock-Krasner award, a Jerome Foundation grant, and two MacDowell fellowships. A native of Maine, she lives and works in New York City where she is co-founder and co-director, with Pascal Glissmann, of the Observational Practices Lab at Parsons, the New School, where she is currently Assistant Professor of Contemporary Art Practice.
