Adriane Little



Adriane Little is a conceptual artist and educator living in Kalamazoo Michigan. Her studio practice originates from the perspective of photographic processes, but also crosses media and theoretical positions.  The underpinnings of her visual work and research are at an intersection of trauma and ritual through an interrogation of a presence and absence of the maternal body. The translation of this space is both literal and metaphor or the architecture of an ephemeral maternal space that is embedded within what she calls the matrilineal ghost. As a continuation of these ideas, recent work turns to literature as a source of visualization. Literature is riddled with dead or otherwise missing mothers.

By both committee and invitation, her artwork has received national and international recognition in numerous exhibitions and video screenings.  Since arriving to Western Michigan University in fall 2006, her artwork has exhibited in 61 different venues in 58 international cities and in 100 different venues in 80 U.S. cities. Most notable and recent venues include; Gallery 1401 (Philadelphia PA), CEPA Gallery (Buffalo NY), the Institute of Culture (Trbovlje Slovenia), The Center for Photography at Woodstock (Woodstock NY), Chelsea Art Museum (NYC), Arizona International Film Festival (Best Experimental Short Award 2019), Syracuse International Film Festival, Siouxland Film Festival, Milwaukee Short Film Festival, Dawson City International Film Festival in the Yukon, Macon Film and Video Festival, Three Rivers Film Festival and the Leeds International Film Festival in the UK, among others. She has curated several video exhibitions including Plus 3 Ferris Wheels, 17 Days and several solo exhibitions in galleries and online.  Adriane Little earned an M.F.A. from the University at Buffalo. She is a Professor of Photography and Intermedia in the Gwen Frostic School of Art at Western Michigan University.
