Amina Ross

Amina Ross is a transdisciplinary Chicago-based artist. Through visual abstraction she creates palatable tensions of repulsion and seduction. The conceptions of black visuality and the sexualized image are combined through a blending of image, writing, performance, curatorial and installation work. She has shown work at numerous venues including the Black Cinema House, Woman Made Gallery, Links Hall and Defibrillator Performance Art Gallery. She has spoken on panels and taught workshops at College Arts Association Conference, Black Artist Retreat, Threewalls and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Amina is committed to creating spaces that foster thinking, conversation, growth and love. These ambitions manifested in the founding of 3rd Language, queer arts collective; which has received the Propeller Fund grant and Davis Foundation awards for its summer workshops series.
Amina holds a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and is currently a teaching artist at Hyde Park Art Center. She is a part of Chicago Artist Coalition’s BOLT residency 2015-2016 cohort.
