Ricky Weaver, ArtCenter’s AICAD Fellows Artist in Residence, is an image-based artist from Ypsilanti, Michigan. She received her BFA from Eastern Michigan University and her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Ricky is currently an instructor at ArtCenter College of Design, The Society of Photographic Education, and more. Ricky is represented by David Klein Gallery (Detroit, MI) and has shown work at the 13th Havana Biennale, Expo Chicago, Photographic Center Northwest, Black Studies Gallery at UT Austin and more. Weaver’s practice prioritizes the ways in which image materializes within a spatiotemporal collapse. Her application of scripture, hymn, and colloquial passages observe the nuances of the everyday as portals to worlds that don’t require escape. She addresses the sonic, linguistic, and visual as a way to posture the body as a central mechanism for storing, downloading and transferring archives.
