Andrea Blum

Professor of Art / Combined Media

andrea blumSince 1983 Andrea Blum has designed social sculptures for permanent and temporary projects in Europe and the United States. The work ranges in site and scale to include urban space, parks, exhibition design, libraries, domestic space, and furniture.

“The work considers the relationship of the social/political world to the private psychological one. My approach has been to combine humor and cynicism to zoom in and out of the conditions, which organize us as a culture, thereby hoping to affect us as individuals. The adage of "what you do in public is different than what you do in the privacy of your own home" explains how and why my interest in public space has moved from the street to the institution to inside the domestic environment. I try to highlight and confuse the differences between these sites in an attempt to promote a social breakdown of content and context.” AB

In addition, Blum exhibits in museums and galleries nationally & internationally, and has had numerous one-person-exhibitions including Maison Rouge, Paris, FR;  Stroom Center for Art & Architecture, Den Haag, NL; sTART Foundation, Venice, IT; Henry Moore Institute, Leeds, UK; and Storefront for Art & Architecture, NY. She has made special projects for the 2005 Venice Biennale, Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the MUDAM museum in Luxembourg, and is represented by Galerie Insitu/Paris and Lumen Travo/Amsterdam.

Blum has received Fellowship Grants from the Guggenheim Foundation, Graham Foundation Fellowship for Advanced Studies in Fine Art, two National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships, New York Foundation Arts Fellowship in Architecture, Art Matters, Inc., Art Commission Award for Excellence, Design Award from the American Institute of Architects, and three PSC-CUNY awards. In 2005 Blum was named Chevalier, Order of Arts and Letters, by the French Minister of Culture.

Blum received her BFA at the Boston Museum School of Fine Arts/Tufts University, and an MFA at the Art Institute of Chicago. She has taught & lectured at various universities in the United States and Europe on the relation between Art, Architecture and Public Space, and is a Full Professor at Hunter College C.U.N.Y.
