About the Speaker:
Anastasia Samoylova (born 1984, Moscow; lives in Miami) moves between observational photography, studio practice and installation. In 2020 she had her first solo museum exhibition of the ongoing project “FloodZone” at USF Contemporary Art Museum, Tampa. The work is on view at Dot Fiftyone Gallery, in Little River, Miami through September 14, 2020.
FloodZone is a psychological portrait of life on the knife’s edge of climate change, in the southern United States facing rising sea levels. With over 80 photographs, the book of the project was published by Steidl in 2019. Signed copies of “FloodZone” are available at Leica Store Miami.
In 2020, FloodZone has been shown at many exhibitions in the US and Europe. A full listing of them is on her website. A few highlights were solo exhibitions at Galerie Peter Sillem, Frankfurt; Galerie Caroline O’Breen, Amsterdam; and a group exhibition at the Kunsthaus Wien in Vienna. Images were also shown at “Six Real Matterhorns”, on the facade of the Wilhelm-Hack-Museum in Ludwigshafen, Germany, and at the Walker Evans Revisited exhibit, as part of the Biennale für Actuelle Fotografie in Germany.
Anastasia Samoylova received her MFA from Bradley University in 2011, and her MA from Russian State University for the Humanities, Moscow, 2007. She was a resident artist at Art Center South Florida/ Oolite Arts in Miami Beach in 2018 – 19, and a short film, “Landscape Sublime”, was produced by Ed Talavera & Dennis Scholl for ArtCenter South Florida. She has also had residencies at The Studios in Mass Moca in Massachusetts and in the Fountainhead in Miami, as well as at Latitude Chicago and in Peoria, Illinois. She is represented by Dot fiftyone Gallery (Miami) and Caroline O’Breen (Amsterdam). Her work has been featured in the New Yorker and Foam magazines. Samoylova is a former Professor of Photography at Bard College at Simon’s Rock, and at Illinois Central College.
About the Art Salons
The Art Salons are a unique gathering place for artists from throughout the South Florida region. They offer thoughtful presentations by influential professional artists whose artwork is being shown in museums and galleries in South Florida, nationally and internationally. Presenters show their work and talk about their influences, followed by stimulating discussions between the artist and the audience. These discussions cover the gamut of contemporary conceptual art practices, including cultural, socio/political, environmental, scientific, race and gender focused and aesthetic practices, the materials and techniques used to convey these ideas, and how our own work relates to the world of contemporary art. Art Salons also offer the opportunity to explore the practical side of being an artist, enhance professional development, share useful resources, and network with other artists. Art Salons have been facilitated by Elle Schorr, in conjunction with the ARMORY ART CENTER in West Palm Beach, since 2012. All are welcome to join in these timely explorations.
The Art Salons will now be presented virtually on Zoom! Tuesdays, once a month, from October to May from 7pm to 9pm.
