Amanda Wasielewski is an American artist living and working in New York City.

I am currently pursuing a doctoral degree at the CUNY Graduate Center and am an adjunct professor at Lehman College teaching Intro to Modern Art. I have spent the last decade living in Chicago, London, Amsterdam, Dubai, New York and Stockholm (in roughly that order). I received a stipend and residence from 2010-2012 at De Ateliers in Amsterdam. Most of my art education took place in London, at Goldsmiths College  (for a year as an undergraduate, in addition to time studying both chemistry and art at Northwestern University) and then at the Slade School of Fine Art for my Masters degree.

Noteworthy achievements include commission of new work, This Invisible Place, for exhibition at De Hallen Museum in Haarlem, nomination for Workspace 11 commission at Filmhuis in Den Haag, selection of Supervision: Wawina, MN for the Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2009 exhibition, shortlist selection for Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2011, and award of the Chelsea Arts Club Special Projects Award.

Most of my recent work broadly deals with the relationship between humans and their tools. This has led me to explore various systems, technologies, codes and languages; maps, economic theories, transport structures and utopian architecture; city spaces, obsolete media and niche subcultures.
