Autumn Ahn is an independent artist and researcher. She has developed a multidisciplinary practice investigating the philosophical and psychological currents of live space through a performance-based approach towards visual art. Inspired by the mechanisms of movement and the embedded distortions in contemporary spaces, she composes an array of sensory influences into volumetric and corporeal arrangements. Her compositions involve installation, sound, video, and drawing, often relying on a close relationship to materials to present experiential works around such themes as identity, ritual, public vs. private space, and language.
Autumn Ahn (b.1986, Philadelphia, USA) has been invited to speak at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the Massachusetts College of Art & Design, to exhibit with the curator Anissa Touati, to coordinate the last Digital Media Art Biennale, The Boston CyberArts Festival, with Director George Fifield (Digital + Media, RISD) and has worked with the glassblowers Einar & Jamex de la Torre. Her recent exhibitions include: Cine Tonalá for Fería ARTBO (Bogota Art Fair), Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; Centre National d’Art Contemporain-Grenoble; Istanbul Embassy, WRONG Biennale; Contemporary Istanbul; Maison du Portugal, Cité Universitaire, Paris; Art Basel, Miami for AIDS Action Committee; Montserrat College of Art & Design, Boston City Hall for HUBWeek, and most recent month-long solo exhibition at The Chimney gallery in Brooklyn, NY.
