Works on LPP
Carrie Dashow is a New York City–based interdisciplinary artist working at the intersection of performance, video, visual arts and social practice. Her often–participatory work, which includes community, historical, and municipally based projects, examines the undercurrents of authority, subjectivity and an indebted relationship to location. The resulting combinations of performance, video, books, structures and songs involve the audience in tactile, truer than true experiences, providing the opportunity for re-negotiation. Her participatory performances among diverse audiences reveal a momentary sense of community and possibility. Much of her work takes place in social and collective situations, on the street, in parks, campgrounds, campervans, mines, galleries, classrooms, internationally, locally, in her living room and on the Internet.
Carrie’s current project, Yesiree the Public Notary, is an official New York State Notary and civic engager. Yesiree specializes in Oaths, Affirmations and Acknowledgements, as well as more existential quandaries.
With an MFA in Integrated Electronic Art from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a BFA in New Genres from SFAI, she has received support from city, state, federal and private funding agencies, including NYSCA, Rockefeller, Jerome Foundation and the NEA. Ms. Dashow is an adjunct Professor of Video at Pace University and NYC College of Technology, CUNY.
