Audra Wolowiec

Lecturer in Art+Design

Audra Wolowiec is an interdisciplinary artist whose work oscillates between sculpture, installation, text, and performance with an emphasis on sound and the material qualities of language. Her poetic sound installations and experimental language scores often use the gap, space, or breath in between speech—not as forms of negation, but as complex generators of meaning.

Wolowiec’s work has been shown internationally and in the U.S. at MASS MoCA, Art in General, Studio 10, the Poetry Project, Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, Stony Brook University, and the Center for Performance Research. It has been featured in BOMBModern PaintersThe New York TimesBrooklyn RailCAA JournalSound American, and reductive journal. Her residencies include the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, Complex Systems Art and Physics Residency at the University of Oregon, and Dieu Donné. She was the inaugural artist educator in residence at Dia:Beacon and currently teaches at Purchase College and Parsons School of Design.
