 Amanda Williams Biography

Amanda Williams is a visual artist whose practice blurs the distinction between art and architecture, and uses color as a lens to highlight the complexities of the politics of race, place, and value in cities.

She is best known for her series, "Color(ed) Theory," in which she painted the exterior of soon-to-be-demolished houses on Chicago's south side using a culturally-charged color palette to mark the pervasiveness of vacancy and blight in black urban communities. The landscapes in which she operates are the visual residue of the invisible policies and forces that have misshaped most inner cities.

Williams has exhibited widely, including the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale, a solo exhibition at the MCA Chicago, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Pulitzer Arts Foundation in St. Louis. She is a 2018 United States Artists Fellow, a Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters & Sculptors grantee, an Efroymson Family Arts Fellow, a Leadership Greater Chicago Fellow and a member of the multidisciplinary Museum Design team for the Obama Presidential Center.

She was appointed the Bill and Stephanie Sick Distinguished Visiting Professor position at the School of the Art Institute Chicago and has previously served as a visiting assistant professor of architecture at Cornell University and Washington University in St. Louis.
