Andrea Wolf is a Chilean-born interdisciplinary artist living and working in New York. Her work consists of ongoing research into the relationship between personal memory and cultural practices of remembering. Wolf creates multimedia installations that explore how technology, media and memory affect and transform each other, creating models of remembrance that are culturally shaped.
Working with an archive of found footage, with anonymous stories – she leaves an open space to be filled by the meaning that each of us brings to the work through our personal experience. Ms Wolf's installations are places in which memory becomes an action that is constantly actualized in the present, while recognizing a system in which the function of the past is not that of truth but of desire.
Ms Wolf holds MFAs in Documentary Filmmaking from Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona and in Digital Arts from Universitat Pompeu Fabra, and an MPA in Interactive Telecommunications from NYU. In 2013, she was a fellow at the Artist in the Marketplace Program at the Bronx Museum, culminating in the biennial exhibition “The Bronx Calling”. In 2015, she was an artist in residence at the IFP New York Media Center. She is currently a member at NEW INC, the New Museum’s incubator program.
Ms Wolf also founded and directed REVERSE, a non-profit art space in New York City for the development of new ideas and interdisciplinary practices, promoting artistic collaboration and innovative projects at the intersection of art, science and technology. Between 2012 and 2016, REVERSE hosted more than 30 exhibitions, multiple performances and an active calendar of workshops taught by a diverse roster of artists.
Ms Wolf has shown her work, and given lectures and workshops in Chile, Perú, Mexico, USA, Ukraine, Norway, Spain, Hong Kong and Turkey.
Andrea Wolf currently lives and works in New York City, USA.
