Artist in Residence (2005-2007)
Faye Driscoll is a Bessie Award-winning performance maker who has been hailed as a “startlingly original talent” (Roslyn Sulcas, The New York Times) and “a postmillenium postmodern wild woman” (Deborah Jowitt, The Village Voice). Her work has been presented nationally at the Wexner Center for the Arts, Walker Art Center, The Institute for Contemporary Art/Boston, MCA/Chicago and BAM/Brooklyn Academy of Music and internationally at La Biennale di Venezia, Festival d’Automne à Paris, Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb, Melbourne Festival, Belfast International Arts Festival, Onassis Cultural Centre in Athens and Centro de Arte Experimental in Buenos Aires. Her most recent performance, Space, was the final live work in her Thank You for Coming trilogy. Space is a moving requiem on art, the body, loss and human connectivity, and was celebrated as “an exhilaratingly personal culmination of the series” (Miram Felton-Dansky, Artforum). Her first-ever solo museum exhibition, Come On In, opened at Walker Art Center in February and remains on-view until June 2020. The installation offers gallery-goers an experience of six distinct audio-guided choreographies. When she isn’t making performance worlds of sensorial complexity in which viewers feel their own culpability as co-creators, she is choreographing for plays and films, including the Broadway production of Young Jean Lee’s Straight White Men, and Josephine Decker’s award-winning feature film Madeline’s Madeline.
