Becca Kahn Bloch (USA, 1990) is a mixed-media artist based in Oakland, CA. She received a BA from Oberlin College in 2013 with double majors in Studio Art and Gender, Sexuality & Feminist Studies, focusing on the queer sublime. She completed a yearlong residency in printmaking at the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, OR, studying technical printmaking processes and Japanese paper-mounting techniques. Kahn Bloch recently completed her MFA in Art Practice at Stanford University. Trained as a printmaker with experience in lithography, etching, screenprinting, and letterpress, her current work is multidisciplinary, engaging with sculpture, audio, and site-specific installation. Grounded in queer and feminist theory, her work considers how to renegotiate failure as a site of possibility and reclamation. Currently her work focuses on unraveling and uncovering the hidden traumas of sexual assault, seeking to unravel their complexities and to uncover what is hidden or erased.
