Audra Wolowiec is an interdisciplinary artist from Detroit, Michigan, based in Brooklyn, New York. Through sculpture, installation, text and performance, she makes conceptually driven work with an emphasis on sound and the material qualities of language. Her poetic installations mine themes of communication, allowing experiences that merge the sensory with the ephemeral.

Audra received an MFA in Sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2007 and BFA in Textiles from the University of Michigan in 2002.

Her collaborative work includes projects with ESTAR(ser) and The Order of the Third Bird, groups dedicated to the practices of sustained attention, with Niels Cosman under the name Studio AND, exploring experimental archeology related to the discovery of Urban Meteorites, and with poet Christine Shan Shan Hou on the publication CONCRETE SOUND.

Audra was an artist in resident at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art in 2014. She has held teaching positions at Parsons, The New School for Design, SUNY Purchase and is the 2014-2015 Artist Educator in Residence at Dia:Beacon, New York.

Her work has been shown at Art in General, New York, Pocket Utopia, Brooklyn, and the Museum of New Art, Detroit, among others.
