Andrea Bowers

Born in Wilmington, Ohio in 1965, Andrea Bowers lives and works in Los Angeles, where she has established an artistic practice fundamentally concerned with contemporary political, social, and aesthetic issues. While Bowers’s work is tightly aligned with feminist concerns, she has also employed various mediums—drawing, installation, video, and photography, for instance—to explore pressing topics such as immigration, environmental activism, abortion, workers’ rights, and sexual and gender discrimination.

Bowers’s educational background includes a BFA from Bowling Green State University in Ohio as well as an MFA from CalArts in Valencia. The artist’s work has been exhibited extensively, including at institutions such as the Pomona College Museum of Art in Claremont, California, the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Athens, REDCAT in Los Angeles, ArtPace in San Antonio, the St. Louis Museum, and the Drawing Center in New York, among others.
