The PSU MFA Critical Conversation Series welcomes Samantha Wall for a public talk on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 from 12-1pm
Samantha Wall is an artist working in Portland, Oregon. Originally from Seoul, South Korea,
Wall immigrated to the United States as a child. Wall’s images explore identity through the push
and pull of cultural diaspora and human interconnectedness. Her monochromatic figure
drawings feature meticulously drawn women who embody Wall’s interest in navigating
multicultural experiences. Her work has been featured in both solo and group exhibitions
regionally and nationally. Wall graduated with an MFA in Visual Studies from the Pacific
Northwest College of Art and she is the recipient of awards and grants from organizations
including the Oregon Arts Commission; Oregon’s Regional Arts & Culture Council; The Ford
Family Foundation; and The Joan Mitchell Foundation. Most recently, she is the winner of
Portland Art Museum’s Contemporary Northwest Art Awards Arlene Schnitzer Prize.
Samantha’s work is included in the collections of the Portland Art Museum, the City of Portland,
and numerous private collections.
Portland State University MFA Studio Visiting Artist Lecture Series and Critical Conversation Series is sponsored by the PSU School of Art + Design. The series brings together artists, curators, and critics from a variety of disciplines to explore the subjects of their own work before a live audience.
FREE and open to the public
