Laura Boles Faw’s work consists of investigations through sculptural objects, installations, curatorial projects, and collaborative ventures. She examines the ways we prop ourselves up in the world and borrows from art historical references in order to create new meanings and transformative fictions. In addition to her solo practice, she is committed to collaborating with other artists through discursive projects.
Boles Faw has recently exhibited in the Bay Area at [ 2nd floor projects ], the Chinese Culture Center’s 41 Ross, Scrawl Center for Drawing, Meridian Gallery, MAX Occupancy, Alter Space Gallery, Kala Art Institute, Royal NoneSuch Gallery, Root Division, and Ever Gold Gallery, and additionally at Ms. Barbers in Los Angeles (solo exhibition), Practice Space in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History, James Madison University in Virginia and Vast Space Projects in Las Vegas (collaborative solo exhibition). In the fall of 2017, she made a permanent public work for the Second (Longli) International New Media Art Season, LongLi, China, and exhibited in the Contemporary Jewish Museum’s Dorothy Saxe Invitational.
Boles Faw received a BA in Art History from Sewanee and a MFA in Sculpture from the San Francisco Art Institute where she held the position of Lecturer in the Sculpture Department from 2012-2018. She recently relocated from San Francisco to Philadelphia.
