BIO

Josie Bettman (Queens, NY) is an artist engaging text, video, and live performance in order to question the dancing body as a mechanism for producing visibility. Their recent work proposes a dysphoric aesthetic via repetition, layering time in folds and loops, seeking the edge along which linguistic structures and physical forms begin to decay towards rupture. Technologies, broadly defined to include spaces, material substances, cameras, and screens, all play roles in her collaborative practice. Josie recently received an MFA in Experimental Choreography at UC Riverside, with the support of the Dean’s Distinguished Fellowship, the MFA Graduate Fellowship, and a fellowship from the Gluck Fellows Program of the Arts.
