Biography

 

Rebecca Weisman

b. 1982 USA

Weisman uses many mediums/media in site-specific installations and films, often self-producing shows in unlikely venues and locations: the Oregon desert, vacant urban buildings, a Vermont mountaintop, her home. She has shown work nationally and internationally, most recently Misbookings, an intervention performed at the Deleuze, Guattari, and the Arts conference at King’s College, Ontario, Excavations, a site-specific sound and architectural projection at the Design Center, Goddard College, and Ethan Allen Nights, a film and sculptural installation at McCarthy Art Center, Saint Michael’s College. She has published articles in Namarupa magazine and C Magazine, and in 2014 will present a paper on “Dark Ecology and the Abject” at the International Zizek Studies conference, Cincinnati. She holds a BA in Studio Art from Reed College and an MFA in Interdisciplinary Art from Goddard College and currently teaches courses in Experimental Film, Video Art, Installation, and Art History at Saint Michael’s College and Burlington College.
