PNCA’s Low-Residency MFA in Visual Studies is pleased to present an artist lecture by Bobbi Woods on Thursday, January 12 at 6pm during our week-long Winter Intensive January 9 through 13. Using appropriated images, posters, and text, Woods breathes new meaning into objects that have outlived their intended purpose as ephemeral collateral meant to inundate the masses and then disappear. Her work provides a refreshing escape from the endless flood of media imagery, calling attention, subversively, to a new relationship to ubiquitous representations of American culture. Woods will be featured in a two-person exhibition Oh Time Your Gilded Pages with Adriana Minoliti at Disjecta, part of the Season 6 Curator–In–Residence Program curated by Michele Fiedler.

Bobbi Woods was born in St. Louis, Missouri. She earned a BFA and an MFA from the Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, in 2004 and 2008, and studied at Staedelschule, Frankfurt/Main, Germany. In 2015, Woods participated in The Manifest Destiny Billboard Project presented by LAND (Tucson, AZ), a two-person exhibition with Mark Verabioff at Ditch Projects (Eugene, OR), as well as in a two-person exhibition with Brian Kennon at Fourteen30 Contemporary (Portland, OR). Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, most recently at Pepin Moore, Los Angeles; Loudhailer Gallery, Los Angeles; Night Gallery, Los Angeles; Infernoesque, Berlin; Derek Eller, New York; Nathalie Karg Gallery, New York; White Columns, New York; Musée d’Art Moderne et d’Art Contemporain, Nice, France. Bobbi Woods lives in Portland, Oregon and Los Angeles, California.

PNCA’s Low Residency MFA in Visual Studies program is the ideal program for the working professional with its longer degree-completion times, flexible schedules, lower tuition, and the distance-learning component, which does not require students to permanently relocate.

Rooted in critical investigation and rigorous, self-disciplined creative practice, the program is designed for motivated students who can work independently, who desire a flexible structure, and who are seeking the challenge and community of an immersive graduate program, inclusive of both discipline-specific and interdisciplinary practices. This 60-credit low-residency, mentor-based art program can be tailored to the  professional goals of each individual student. And the program is enlivened by a wide range of visiting artists, critics, and scholars.

Students come to our campus in downtown Portland, Oregon for three consecutive eight-week Summer Intensives and two brief Winter Intensives. Students engage in independent inquiry, in-depth studio exploration, peer-to-peer dialogue, intensive cross-disciplinary group critiques,
