About Amelia

Amelia Foster is an American interdisciplinary artist based out of New York City. Her practice includes traditional mediums and participatory, multi-sensory installation-based experiences.

Much of her work is informed by her experience as a coral reef microbiologist and educator. Her current projects focus on ecologies of abuse. She examines these systems of abuse both on an ecological and interpersonal level, particularly environmental and domestic abuse.
