An undisciplined creator, Amina Ross creates boundary-crossing works that embrace embodiment, technology, intimacy and collectivity in physical and digital spaces. Amina's work examines systems of power and minoritarian modes of resistance and pleasure. 

 

Amina has exhibited work, spoken on panels, and taught workshops at venues throughout the United States and abroad. Amina founded and co-organized ECLIPSING, a multi-media festival celebrating darkness, the participatory performance series Beauty Breaks, and the venue F4F. Amina was a 2018-2019 Artist-in-Residence at Arts & Public Life and the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture at the University of Chicago. Amina is currently an MFA candidate at Yale School of Art within the sculpture department.
