Caitlin Dowd

MA '16

bio portrait

Caitlin is a scholar who has followed a quirky trajectory through visual art practice to making video art to fashion design to art history to art theory to performance studies. Her scholarly interest is in trying to point to that experiential relationship to art: where is the trace of the artist still? What happens to the viewer in looking? Caitlin’s current project is in trying to reason new means of placing dance into the gallery or museum space. Prior writings focus on the departure from the 2-dimensional picture plan post WWII, Judson Church, art in NY in the 1980s, and dance for camera.
