Freddy Chandra is an Indonesian-American visual artist living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area. He completed his undergraduate studies in Architecture and Art Practice from the University of California at Berkeley, and obtained his M.F.A in Studio Art from Mills College in Oakland.
His work consists of site-specific installations and multi-panel wall compositions. Each installation is an immersive environment constructed as a place that encourages sensory understanding of physical space and temporal duration. His compositions suggest a contingency in the rhythmic act of marking space and shifts that occur in our experience of time.
Chandra has exhibited his work in the United States, Canada and Europe. He is an Adjunct Faculty at Mills College, and has previously been a Summer Session Lecturer at UC Berkeley. He is a recipient of a 2009 Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant. He has also previously received a 2006 Kala Art Institute Fellowship, a Project Space Residency at the Headlands Center for the Arts in 2007, and a residency at the Djerassi Resident Artists Program in 2009.
