ABOUT

Jami Porter Lara is a conceptual artist who is interested in the power of everyday objects, habits and gestures to shape and reshape the world in which we live. Through a broad range of formal approaches such as ceramic sculpture, sign-making, lithography, and drawing as well as sewing and embroidery, she interrogates ideas about what is natural, obvious, or common sense for subtexts and erasures, often utilizing frictions between form and material to suggest what may be meant but not said, said but not heard, or heard but deliberately obscured.

 

Recent projects have been shown at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC, the Craft and Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles, the Center for Contemporary Craft in Pittsburgh, the New Mexico Museum of Art, the National Hispanic Cultural Center Museum, the Albuquerque Museum, and the Harwood Museum in Taos, NM. Notable reviews of this work have appeared in Hyperallergic, Art 21 Magazine, American Craft, American Art Collector, and Ceramic Monthly, and more. In 2017, Artsy named her one of the artists shaping the future of ceramics.

 

Porter Lara's work is in public collections including the Smithsonian Museum, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the U.S. State Department, the Albuquerque Museum, and the New Mexico Museum of Art. Notable residencies and fellowships include MacDowell, Yaddo, the Santa Fe Art Institute, Arquetopia, and the Tamarind Institute.
