Nina Bovasso

Traveling in a Wider Circumference

Wednesday, November 28


301 Williams Hall


Extremely animated, and often hilarious; Nina Bovasso’s labyrinthine artwork connects the practice of abstraction to everyday life. Her cartoon sensibility, absorption in popular culture, and  keen design sense immerse viewers into the dizzying compositions of her paintings, drawings, and sculptures.

New York City born and bred,  Bovasso earned her B.F.A. from The San Francisco Art Institute, and her M.F.A. from Bard College. She has been exhibiting regularly since the early nineties, where she got her start while still an undergrad. Her numerous group and solo shows include The Museum of Contemporary Art, Cleveland, OH; Atlanta Contemporary Art Center; BravinLee programs, NY; Diana Stigler, Amsterdam; Clementine Gallery, New York, NY; Richard Heller Gallery, Santa Monica, CA; and Vedanta Gallery, Chicago, IL. Her work is in many public collections, including MoMA, The New Museum, and The Whitney Museum. She has been a visiting artist at The University of Tennessee,  California College of Arts & Crafts, and at The University of Virginia; and she has been the recipient of may awards and fellowships including a Guggenheim, a New York Foundation for the Arts Grant, and a Marie Walsh Sharpe Foundation Grant. For the past five years, Bovasso divides her time between New York City and Amsterdam., The Netherlands.
