Emily Fussner: Castings


In the second episode of AAC Off the Wall, AAC’s Curator of Exhibitions, Blair Murphy, talks to AAC resident artist Emily Fussner about work from her Castings series. Emily is a multidisciplinary artist who works in response to ephemeral patterns and overlooked spaces, exploring questions of place and the body, fragility and care, transience and presence. She joined AAC’s resident artist program in 2019.

Emily Fussner grew up in Indonesia, Indiana, and New Zealand, and now lives in the Washington, DC area. She has exhibited her work locally, nationally, and internationally, and had her first solo exhibition in Washington, DC in 2019 at IA&A at Hillyer. Fussner received a BS in Printmaking from Indiana Wesleyan University and an MFA in Visual Arts from George Mason University. She participated in American University’s MFA Studio Berlin summer residency at GlogauAIR, and was awarded a 2018-2019 Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Graduate Fellowship. She has experience teaching and assisting in galleries, and currently teaches printmaking at George Mason and works as the event manager at Washington Project for the Arts.
