Amalia Ulman is an airport based artist with an office in Downtown LA. Born in Argentina but raised in Spain, she studied Fine Arts at Central Saint Martins in London. In a multidisciplinary manner, she charts a soft- toned exploration of the relationships between consumerism and identity, class imitation and social deception. She uses aesthetic languages as a mechanism to explore the intersection of class and aesthetics at its most salient point: taste. Recent solo exhibitions include: Labour Dance at Arcadia Missa, London and Stock Images of War at James Fuentes, New York. She has produced a public sculpture for Köln Sculpture park, exhibited at Mama Rotterdam, Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, Tate Modern and Whitechapel Gallery amongst many others.
