An undisciplined creator, Amina Ross creates boundary-crossing works that embrace embodiment, imaging technologies, intimacy, and collectivity in physical and digital spaces. Amina has exhibited work, spoken on panels, and taught workshops at venues throughout the United States. Amina's intention within a media-centering practice is to engage sensuality and sense-perception as modes of reclaiming the body. Amina is a 2018-2019 Artist-in-Residence at Arts & Public Life and the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture at the University of Chicago.
As an educator, Amina is an adjunct lecturer in the Contemporary Practices department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Co-Lead Artist of Teen Creative Agency at the Museum of Contemporary Art.
As a cultural organizer, Amina is curator of ECLIPSING, a multi-media festival celebrating darkness.
