Artist Bio

Kathie Halfin is a Russian-Israeli artist. She lives and works in the Bronx. Kathie works in variety of mediums including installation, performance, costume production, and sound. Her work refers to the body and is its physical and vocal potential. Working with fictional and biographical narratives she explores and transforms the structures of the exploitation and enforcement of the body. Kathie stages and reimagines existing dysfunctional narratives while striving to expose the complexity and nuances related to an individual, and especially female, body.

Kathie received her MFA from School Of Visual Arts at 2015 where she was awarded Paula Rhodes Memorial Award for the work that deemed exceptional by her chair and faculty. Kathie’s work was exhibited and performed at the Bronx Museum, AIR Gallery, El Museo De Los Sures, Flux Factory. She was awarded fully funded residencies at Vermont Studio Center and Bronx Museum AIM Program, and the upcoming 2018 Wassaic Project Summer Residency.

Kathie was featured and interviewed by TransBorder Art TV series. In 2017 Kathie curated the series of performances informed by female and non-binary bodies “Not A Rehearsal” at El Museo De Los Sures.
