Einat Amir

Studio grant holder in Stockholm 1 February - 30 April 2018

Jerusalem-born artist Einat Amir works in the media of video installations and live performances. She received her MFA in Visual Arts from Columbia University in 2009. Amir’s works are a research of human interactions that explore the possibilities inherent in everyday communication between people. They are partly staged, partly improvised, partly real-time, partly pre-recorded. She regards her studio as a “lab of emotional research” where she experiments in creating interactions that blend the notions of authenticity, fabrication and manipulation.
Amir’s work has been exhibited at: MoMA PS1, New York; PERFORMA13, New York; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; MAXXI National Museum of Rome; Istanbul Museum of Modern Art, Turkey; Whitechapel Gallery, London; The Kitchen, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art in Roskilde, Denmark; Scaramouche Gallery, New York; Moscow Contemporary Art Center Winzavod; Bergen Kunsthall, Norway; Dallas Contemporary Art Center, Texas; Tel Aviv Museum, Israel; Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard, Paris; MLAC, Rome; and Lilith Performance Studio, Malmö, among other venues.
