Laura Boles Faw
Visiting Faculty
Sculpture

Laura Boles Faw’s work consists of investigations through sculptural objects and installations, curatorial projects, and collaborative ventures. She examines spatial and social constructions and looks to create new meanings and transformative fictions. In conjunction with her solo practice, Boles Faw collaborates with Cathy Fairbanks on a discursive project called ap-art-ment. Their recent show, About the Thing and the Thing Itself, was Las Vegas Weekly’s top pick for exhibitions in 2011.
