Geraldine Ondrizek has been creating multi-layered, thought-provoking works of art for more than 25 years. She is a deep researcher and collaborator across disciplines, drawing on art, science, history, anthropology, psychology, biology, and so much more. Through her art she addresses issues of identity and relationships, memory and inheritance, on a personal level and on a global scale. Many of her large-scale installations, including the three exhibited here, explore the pursuit of knowledge about genetics, and how this information can lead us toward life-saving discoveries, deeper understanding of the human race, and moral ambiguities.


Geraldine Ondrizek is a Professor of Art and artist at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. For the last twenty years she has collaborated with genetic and medical researchers to make architectural based installations. She has had over 30 solo exhibitions internationally and is the recipient of several grants including an Individual Artist Fellowship from the Oregon Arts Commission, the Hallie Ford Fellow in the Visual Arts, The Ford Family Foundation, exhibition grants from NASA and the Houston Foundation, UNESCO artist-in-residence, an NEA exhibition support grant, and a Mellon Foundation Art and Science Research Grant. She recently completed an artist-in-residence at Kaiser Wilhelm Archive at The Max Planck Institute in Berlin where she studied the work of Dr. Georg Geipel and the origins of biometric data. She received her BFA from Carnegie-Mellon University and an MFA from the University of Washington.

Thinking Through Craft is an advanced year long academic program which incorporates a philosophical study of craft with a studio practice in either wood or metal. Members of this learning community came with a diverse range of experiences making, and developed skills in one material over the entire year. The program has culminated in Object/Lessons , an exhibition curated to illuminate our intellectual and creative exploration, and show our best work. In it, we explore craft through the lenses of Material, Process, Function, Mediation, and Agency.
