Amanda Russhell Wallace is a multimedia, multi-disciplinary-interested artist. Her work ranges from documentary family photographyto experiments with time-based media. Many of her projects explore internal and external (social) identities. The primary focus of Wallace’s work locates itself in the archive (records, cemeteries, oral histories, etc.) as a site for “family reunion.” Thus, she considers the notion that cultural identity and acceptance are based on the remnants of speech, texts, and imagery gathered and carried throughout time.
Wallace’s work has been shown nationally and internationally in a variety of venues—galleries, conferences and symposia—including the Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, Newark Museum and Flux Factory.
