Fiber and Material Studies Fall 2021 Mitchell Lecture Series
Amy Yoes works in a multi-faceted way, alternately employing installation, photography, video, painting, and sculpture. A lifelong interest in decorative language and architectural space permeates all of her work. Yoes’ ongoing research of craft, architecture, and decorative art has been furthered by travel and research opportunities that included residencies at the Maison Dora Marr / Brown Fellowship Award Residency (Menérbes, France); the AIR Krems Residency (Krems, Austria); the The British School at Rome Abbey Award Residency (Rome, Italy); and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Artist in Residence Program. She is currently preparing a solo exhibition called Hot Corners for Mass MoCA in North Adams, MA. Yoes currently teaches at SAIC in the departments of Fiber and Material Studies, Sculpture, Photography, and Contemporary Practices.
The Fiber and Material Studies department’s annual Mitchell Lectureship Series features outstanding artists and scholars in the field of fiber. These lectures are made possible by the generous support of the William Bronson and Grayce Slovett Mitchell Lectureship in Fiber and Material Studies. This event will be live captioned by CART.
