Residency                             Fall 2018


Bailey Connolly (b. 1993, Santa Ana, CA) lives and works in Los Angeles. She received her BA from Bard College in 2015. Utilizing a vocabulary of architectonic and sometimes geographical forms, she explores her own – often fraught – relationship with the built environment of the frontier metropolis and its overwhelming archives of detritus. Intimate and banal, her works weave together a personal understanding from the frayed ends of our material culture.
