Olivia Wall holds a BA with Highest Honors in Art: Studio from Smith College, an MFA in Photography from Memphis College of Art, and an MA in Art History from the University of Memphis. Wall's research interests focus on the theoretical implications of meaning production, and in particular, the interplay between word and image in modern and contemporary art. Her academic interests include the postwar nuclear landscape, appropriation, and semiotics. Similarly, Wall's multimedia artistic practice explores how meaning is produced by attempting to create meaningful connections from seemingly meaningless juxtapositions. Outside of academia, Wall is committed to preserving the historic integrity of her community and as such is the co-founder of Preserve Cooper-Young. She grew up in Southern Nevada and is currently based out of Memphis, TN.
