Bio for Sara Hunsucker

Sara Hunsucker is a native Southern Californian. She is also a multi-disciplinary artist, art educator, independent curator, and stand-up comic. Her work questions normative social identities and investigates relationships between the body and psyche. Her practice utilizes a language of dark humor to describe pertinent issues of consumption and other societal maladies. Hunsucker has worked on curatorial Projects for the UCLA Hammer Museum of Art and Sixteen:One Gallery in Santa Monica. She has exhibited: at LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions), Taylor de Cordoba, Los Angeles, and Jail Gallery, Los Angeles. Upon receiving her MFA from UCSD Visual Arts, Hunsucker plans on returning to Los Angeles to establish a studio and open a contemporary exhibition space sometime in the future.
