50 Artists: Julia Goodman on Amanda Ross-Ho

Related Exhibition A Slow Succession with Many Interruptions
Part of 50 Artists

Friday, February 17, 2017


The thousands of artworks at SFMOMA offer countless opportunities to look closely and think deeply about some of the most amazing artists of our time. To celebrate both the artists on view in the newly expanded museum and the creative communities of the Bay Area, 50 Artists invites local artists and creative professionals to share how icons of modern and contemporary art matter to them. This week, Julia Goodman takes a closer look at Amanda Ross-Ho’s White Goddess #12 (Namesake), 2008.

Goodman uses humble and visceral materials to reexamine cycles in life, agriculture, and the cosmos. Goodman’s current and upcoming exhibitions include the Poetry Foundation in Chicago, San Jose Institute for Contemporary Art, and Center for Book Arts in New York. Julia received her MFA from California College of the Arts and her BA in International Relations and Peace and Justice Studies from Tufts University. Goodman lives and works in Oakland.
