Jo Ann Block’s work comments on the complexities and ambiguities of queer identity. She is interested in the inherent plurality of identities and the impossibility of constructing an intelligible identity through time. Her projects investigate queer history, sexuality, and identity as they are inscribed within historical and contemporary culture. Her work includes painting, collage, assemblage, and installation. Now living and working in Washington DC, Jo Ann Block received a BFA from UCLA and an MFA from Vermont College of the Fine Arts.
