Amalia Ulman is an airport-based artist with an office in Downtown LA. Born in Argentina but raised in Spain, she studied Fine Arts at Central Saint Martins in London.
In a multidisciplinary manner, she charts a soft-toned exploration of the relationships between consumerism and identity, class imitation and social deception, altruism and orientalism, with a particular focus on the idea of “cute” and “pretty”.
She uses the aesthetic languages of the middle, its “sublime ordinariness”, as a mechanism to explore the intersection of class and aesthetics at its most salient point: taste.
She is a feminist.
