Faye Driscoll New York
Faye Driscoll is a performance maker and artist who has been hailed as a “startlingly original talent” (Roslyn Sulcas, The New York Times) and whose most recent exhibition was celebrated as “experiential training in how to inhabit this unbearable new world” (Miriam Felton-Dansky). She has received numerous prestigious awards, including Doris Duke Artist Award, United States Artist Fellowship, Guggenheim Fellowship, Creative Capital Award, and is currently New York Live Arts’ Randjelovic / Stryker Resident Commissioned Artist. Her work has been presented nationally at the Wexner Center for the Arts, Walker Art Center, The Institute for Contemporary Art / Boston, MCA / Chicago and BAM / Brooklyn Academy of Music, and internationally at La Biennale di Venezia, Festival d’Automne à Paris, Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb, Melbourne Festival, Belfast International Arts Festival, Onassis Cultural Centre in Athens and Centro de Arte Experimental in Buenos Aires. Her first solo museum exhibition, Come On In at Walker Art Center in 2020, offered gallery-goers an experience of six distinct audio-guided choreographies. Driscoll also choreographs for plays and films, including the Broadway production of Young Jean Lee’s Straight White Men, and Josephine Decker’s award-winning feature film Madeline’s Madeline.
