Laura Tanner

Artistic Rising: Climate in Crisis
Type of work
Multidisciplinary Artist

Laura Tanner’s creative works act as sites of inquiry into the revisionist histories that reinforce systems of inequity. Spanning drawing, installation and social practice, she works with historical institutions and local communities to collect documented and oral histories that shed light onto the extraordinary contradictions between the perceived and experienced narratives in America. Since receiving her MFA from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, Tanner has exhibited nationally, including exhibitions at the Springfield Art Museum, the Weatherspoon Art Museum, and the Susquehanna Art Museum.

Her work can be viewed at the Jonathan Ferrara Gallery in New Orleans or in the collection of the Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro, NC. Laura Tanner is the Producer and Co-Host of the podcast, The Open Call. She is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Visual Art and Art History at Florida Atlantic University, in Boca Raton, FL.
