Emma Duehr (b.1995) is a project-based artist living and working in Portland, OR.
With an emphasis on social engagement, activism, and material specificity, Duehr builds healing and empowering organizations that facilitates community, conversations, and collaborations. She works with communities engaged in sociology, urban affairs, environmental, and gender studies. Her work typically confronts cultural norms by resurfacing her personal experiences as female in America into projects that ask her audience to consider their own roles in present-day politics. She has maintained a multi-disciplinary artistic career for nearly 10 years and her projects have attained International participation. She has been awarded for her pursuits by Portland State University with the School of Art and Design Scholarship and the Art and Design Gloria Weir Melgard Award and the Fine Arts Division Meneve Dunham Award from Clarke University.
