Ann-Maree Walker

The modern body is an active site of social power play and Ann-Maree Walker explores the contemporary rituals and costuming that are involved in its pageantry. Through a variety of methods and materials including textiles, performance, video and installation, her work navigates the triumphs and pitfalls of our search for identity and connection.

Walker was born in 1979 in Wichita, Kansas and studied printmaking at Oklahoma State University. She received her MFA in Visual Art at Washington University in 2006 and currently works as a research assistant at the Saint Louis Art Museum where she runs the Study Room for Prints, Drawings and Photographs.
