Canadian-born artist Mia Feuer makes installations born from her interest in sites where humans’ actions have visibly impacted the landscape. Her work makes connections between our dependency on the hydrocarbon industry and petroleum derivatives, and the rapid and often catastrophic changes that this dependency causes. Recently Feuer has been conducting research on the federally unrecognized Biloxi Chitimacha-Choctaw Indian tribes, the Pointe au Chien and Isle de Jean Charles, who live among the bayous of southern Louisiana.
Feuer lives and works in Oakland, California, where she is an Assistant Professor of Sculpture at California College of the Arts. Born in Winnipeg, Canada, Feuer has received numerous national and international grants and fellowships. Feuer won the 2011 Trawick Prize and received the prestigious Joseph S. Stauffer Prize from the Canada Council for the Arts in 2012. She also created and curated The Flooded Lecture Series which took place on the Anacostia River during fall 2014 in Washington DC. Feuer was an artist in residence at the Va Space Residency in Isfahan, Iran in the summer of 2015.
