Artists I have been looking at

I have been looking at the work of Kate Gilmore, Liz Cohen and Adrian Piper.

Kate Gillmore deals with feminine ideas through physicality and “critiques on gender and sex”

Specific examples include “My Love is an Anchor”

“Like This, Before”

“Between a Hard Place”

Liz Cohen is a performance artist and automotive designer. Her work explores gender, identity and group membership. She transforms two things: a car and her body simultaneously in her project “Bodywork”. She says “I’m the car’s builder, the vehicle’s owner, and the bikini model who will show it off. There’s usually a disconnect between all three, yet I’m embodying them all.”


Adrian Piper’s “Funk Lessons” were collaborative performances/lessons where she taught people the history and moves of funk.
