Amber Doe (b.1980, Washington, D.C.) currently lives and works in Tucson, AZ. She holds a BFA from Sarah Lawrence College and is a recipient of the 2021 Abbey Awards Fellowship and a recipient of 2017 and 2016 Lyman Fund Grants. Her work has been included in exhibitions at the Museum of Museums, Seattle; the Amarillo Museum of Art, Amarillo; The Irwin House Gallery, Detroit; The LeRoy Neiman Art Center, New York; Gabriel Rolt Gallery, Amsterdam; La Ira de Dios, Buenos Aire; MCLA Gallery, MA, and a solo performance exhibition at The Thief Hotel, Oslo. Doe uses sculpture and performance to bear witness to the experiences of black women even as American society aims to render them and their lives as invisible and meaningless. She uses materials that reference her desert environment and lived experience as a black woman with Indigenous roots: palm leaves, branches, flowers, hair extensions, and cotton rope all give form to her sculptures, installations, videos, and performances.
