Steinberg Hall, Auditorium
Steinberg Hall, St. Louis, MO

Born in Atlanta to Thai and Indonesian immigrants, Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya is a multidisciplinary artist, educator and activist. Her work in sculpture, textile, public art and ritual has reclaimed space in museums and galleries, at protests and rallies, on buildings, in classrooms and on the cover of Time. Her work examines the unseen labor of women, amplifies AAPI narratives and affirms the depth, resilience and beauty of communities of color. Phingbodhipakkiya has been artist-in-residence with the NYC Commission on Human Rights and sits on the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, where she advises the president on how art can foster community well-being.
