Amanda Williams is a visual artist who trained as an architect. Her practice blurs the distinction between art and architecture through works that employ color as a way to draw attention to the political complexities of race, place and value in cities. Williams’ installations, paintings, video and works on paper seek to inspire new ways of looking at the familiar, and in the process, raise questions about the state of urban space in America. Williams has exhibited widely, including at the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale and a solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
