Amy Balkin

  • Amy Balkin was born in 1967 in Baltimore, but grew up in Chicago before moving to San Francisco, where she  lives and works. Her various long-term projects respond to society's relationship to the land, the atmosphere, the ocean and other natural resources, and how these resources have been used and valued. Often explicitly critical of the  economic and political forces that frame these resources, she thinks beyond borders and nation-states to ask earth-scale questions about their allocation and ownership. Her recent projects include This is the Public Domain, Public Smog, and A People’s Archive of Sinking and Melting. She has taken part in numerous group exhibitions and is Associate Professor at the California College of the Arts.
