Amber Ginsburg creates site-generated projects and social sculpture that insert historical scenarios into present day situations. Her background in craft orients her projects towards the continuities and ruptures in material, social, and utopic histories. Her work, often collaborative, engages objects as collaborators, agent-provocateurs and narrative instigators.
Her research-based multimedia installations have been shown in museums and galleries including: Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; The Soap Factory, Minneapolis, MN; The Society for Contemporary Craft, Pittsburg, PA; World Ceramic Biennale, Korea; KunstTREFFpunkt, Darmstadt, Germany; Artsonje, Seoul, Korea; Raid Projects, Los Angles, CA and the Bristol Biennial, England.
In addition to teaching and making a wide variety of works both visual and written, Amber is an editor for YoYoMagazine.org, an iterative online journal of arts, narrative and poetry.
