Amber Ginsburg is an artist, editor, writer and lecturer at the University of Chicago.
Together with collaborators, Amber 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 engages objects as collaborators, agent-provocateurs and narrative instigators.
Her research-based multimedia installations have been shown in museums and galleries, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; The Soap Factory, Minneapolis, Minnesota; The Society for Contemporary Craft, Pittsburg, Pennsylvania; World Ceramic Biennale, Korea; KunstTREFFpunkt, Darmstadt, Germany; Artsonje, Seoul, Korea; Raid Projects, Los Angles and the Bristol Biennial, England.
Ginsburg is an editor of YoYoMagazine.org, an online journal of arts, narrative and poetry.
