Oxbow School Visiting Artist Lecture Series - Audrey Snyder & Joe Riley

Please join us for a lecture with Oxbow alumni artist Audrey Snyder (OS17) and artist Joe Riley.

Audrey Snyder (b. San Francisco, 1991) is an artist and chef based in the U.S. Her engagement in these practices finds footing in seeds, soil, and geological time. She has a BFA from the Cooper Union (2013) and participated in the Interdisciplinary Art & Theory Program (2018-19), Fresh Kills Field R/D program (2017-18), and was a fellow of the Socrates Sculpture Park Emerging Artist Fellowship (2018-19). Her collaborative work with the collective Futurefarmers has exhibited widely, including the Guggenheim Intervals (2011)Artes Mundi 7 and Sharjah Biennial 13. In 2019, her project CAMPAGNA/CAMPANA/CAMPO was awarded first prize from the Rural Design Lab in San Potito Sannitico, Italy.

Audrey Snyder & Joe Riley are collaborators with one another and the artist collective Futurefarmers. Their art combines the poetic, political, and practical as a point of entry to explore dense interactions of urban and rural concourses, human and nonhuman forms. The work is context-specific and collaborative in (and with) nature. Their material-based practice attends to the connectivity of ecology and infrastructures: finding expression as sculpture, installation, and public engagements. Tangled in the knotty togetherness of geological time and political urgencies, this work proceeds with the hope of grasping the past in order to excite the present and future.
