Cori Redstone makes work about pathological optimism and redemption through rebellion. Her art work examines how personal and political choices are influenced by the subjective realities of the individual, induced identities and how the actions of the individual alter the public sphere. Her work has been shown across the United States including the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art and Aspen Art Museum.
Redstone’s work is heavily influenced by her passion for the landscapes of her childhood in the American Southwest and Rocky Mountains and her volunteer work as a human rights organizer. She has garnered critical attention for her intersectional environmental work and social practice. In 2012 she was awarded a 350.org Blue Mountain Artist Residency.
Cori has had artworks, photographs and writing published in numerous publications and most recently authored a chapter of a college sociology textbook titled “Emergent Possibilities for Global Sustainability, Intersections of race, class and gender” Rutledge, July 2016. Her work is in a number of private and public collections across the United States
