The work of performance artist Dawn Kasper emerges out of a fascination with the subjects of vulnerability, desire, and the construction of meaning. Kasper’s work often critiques the corporatized aspects of culture by examining the emotions most commonly manipulated by advertisers and media such as fear, panic, hate, envy, and lust. Creating a theatrical spaces that often double as a platform for living sculpture, Kasper performs in a structured yet spontaneous manner using props, costume, sound, comedy, gesture, extreme physicality, repetition, and monologue. Her work has been exhibited widely; The Migros Museum, Zurich (2005), Human Resources, LA (2011), Tramway, Glasgow (2012), 2012 Whitney Biennial, Whitney Museum of American Art, NY (2012) Redling Fine Art, LA (2014) David Lewis, NY (2014) Kasper lives and works in New York.

Sponsored in part by Blick-Utrecht Art Supplies, the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art and MFA Happy Hour, the PSU MFA Studio Lecture Series brings together artists from a variety of disciplines to explore the subjects of their own work before a live audience.

PSU’S MFA IN CONTEMPORARY ART PRACTICE/STUDIO degree program is dedicated to interdisciplinary experimentation and the exploration of ideas through the experience of making. Students are supported in a range of research and production, from the traditional to the emerging, as they consider the multiple ways art can live in and beyond the studio.
