Visiting Artist – Gina Siepel

The Department of Art’s Intermedia Program will host the final artist of this year’s visiting artist program. Gina Siepel will be presenting in-person on Tuesday, March 26 at 7pm in IMRC 104.

Siepel (she/they) is an interdisciplinary artist, designer, and woodworker. Their artistic practice reflects an engagement with place, history, queer experience, and ecology, and their work integrates conceptual concerns and craftsmanship with a focus on wood as a natural and a cultural material. Gina’s objects, installations, drawings, videos, and other works link aesthetic and materially-based modes of artistic production to other forms of inquiry, including collaboration, social engagement, site-based exploration, and research.

Siepel holds a BFA from the School of Art + Design at SUNY Purchase and an MFA from the Maine College of Art, and has taught at Amherst College, Mount Holyoke College, and currently teaches in the Massachusetts College of Art and Design MFA program.
