“At all levels of the art world one finds extreme wealth breezing past grinding poverty.” 

-- Andrea Fraser, “There’s No Place Like Home,” 2012 Whitney Biennial  

Andrea Fraser’s provocative critiques of the contemporary art world take the form of performance pieces, video installations, museum tours, art lectures and critical essays.  In her work as an “institutional critic,” Fraser explores the political and economic underpinnings of the contemporary art world, pointing out, for instance, the relationship between the hyperinflation of art prices and growing social and economic inequality. Andrea Fraser is currently Professor of New Genres in the Department of Art at the University of California, Los Angeles.
