Addison Woolsey (Seattle, 1993) is a ceramic artist, writer and translator who lives and works between Mexico City and Los Angeles. Since 2016, he has been a member of the artist-run studio Taller Mono Rojo in Mexico City, and he has been a visiting artist at studios in Oaxaca, Seattle, and Medellín. In addition to his work as a ceramic artist, Addison translates poetry and art criticism from Spanish and French to English. He is currently in the second year of a Master’s Program in Latin American Studies at UCLA, where his research concerns the ethnographic legacy of Maud Oakes, an American painter, anthropologist, and Jungian psychoanalytic scholar. His ceramic work explores materiality and non-linguistic communicative practices, drawing from diverse ceramic histories and contemporary scholarship in anthropology and the environmental humanities.
