lives and works in Los Angeles, CA

As a feminist and activist, Andrea Bowers‘ work addresses contemporary political issues such as immigration, environmental activism and feminism. She combines aesthetic practice with a political stance in sculptures, films,multimedia objects and documentary works. Mostly this involves a feminist, social and ecological perspective.

Bowers pursues work that is informed by historical consciousness, that addresses our times and at the same time the history of political activism and visual languages. Her work reveals the issues of the past years, the developments about ecology, environmental and climate protection. The sense of isolation and vulnerability in her motifs is particularly strong. In 2021 she had solo-shows at the Hammer Museum in L.A. and the MCA in Chicago. 

Andrea Bowers had her first solo-show at VAN HORN in 2005.
