Andrea Bowers on Art and Activism
We meet Andrea Bowers, an artist from Ohio who's based in Los Angeles, to talk about her passion for addressing social and political issues. Curators of two international biennials in North America selected her work for their 2014 exhibitions. Her Courtroom Drawings appear in l'Avenir, the inaugural Montreal Biennial. Two of Bowers's projects concerning environmental activism are on view in Unsettled Landscapes at SITE Santa Fe.
