Join us for the Juror Lecture with Amy Yoes for Young Contemporaries 2018 in room 309 of the Simons Center for the Arts. In this lecture, she will discuss her own creative practice.
Amy Yoes was born in 1959 and grew up in Houston, Texas. She has lived in Chicago, San Francisco and, since 1998, in New York. She works in a multi-faceted way, alternately employing installation, photography, video, painting, and sculpture. An interest in decorative language and architectural space permeates all of her work. She responds to formal topologies of ornament and style that have reverberated through time, informing our mutually constructed visual and cultural memory.
In what has become a venerable tradition at the College of Charleston, the Halsey Institute presents Young Contemporaries 2018. Now in its 33rd year, the exhibition features work by College of Charleston students juried by a nationally prominent juror. The exhibition reflects the strength and diversity of practice in the School of the Arts’ rigorous programs. Featuring a wide range of media—including paintings, sculpture, photography, and prints—the exhibition showcases the talent of the student body at the College. For 2018, Amy Yoes will serve as the juror.
