Amalia Ulman is an airport based artist with an office in Downtown LA. Born in Argentina but raised in Spain, she studied Fine Arts at Central Saint Martins in London. Her works are primarily voiced in the first person, often blurring the distinction between the artist and object of study. In a multidisciplinary manner, she explores the relationship between consumerism and identity, class imitation and social deception, altruism and empathy. Recent exhibitions include International House of Cozy, MAMA, Rotterdam (2015); Stock Images of War, James Fuentes, New York (2015); The Destruction Of Experience, Evelyn Yard, London (2014) and Excellences & Perfections, a performance in social media that has been archived by Rhizome the New Museum, New York, and supported by Arcadia_Missa, London and exhibited at the Whitechapel Gallery and Tate Modern (London).

She recently participated in Frieze Live with Arcadia_Missa with the video essay "The Annals Of Private History" and took part in The Influencers Festival (CCCB Barcelona) with Franco "Bifo" Berardi and The Yes Men between others.
