Monika Weiss

Based in New York City, Polish-American artist Monika Weiss creates environments that explore the body as cultural and physical signifier, in the context of historical and individual memory. 'Much of her work to date is structured as a remarkable, individual counterpoint between technological media (video projection) and the ancient activity of drawing, which is presented in a primal state inseparable from the body as a whole.' (Guy Brett, London, 2007). In 2005 the artist's first partial retrospective exhibition was on view at the Lehman College Art Gallery, The City University of New York, followed by the publication of a monographic survey catalogue and a New York Times review.

In 2006-2007 Weiss’s works were on view at Kunsthaus Dresden (Germany), North Dakota Museum of Contemporary Art, Grand Forks, Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation (CIFO), Miami, ArteBA, Buenos Aires (Argentina), The Facto Foundation, Trancoso (Portugal), Instytut Sztuki WYSPA, Gdansk (Poland), and The Drawing Center, New York.

Weiss' works are represented in multiple public collections including Museum Albertina, Vienna, Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, Peekskill, New York and Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation, Miami.

Forthcoming books featuring Weiss’s work include "Drawing Now: Between the Lines of Contemporary Art" (Loughborough University, I. B.Tauris, UK, 2007). Weiss is currently Assistant Professor of Drawing and New Media in the Department of Art at Washington College and is working towards PhD degree in new media at the Planetary Collegium, University of Plymouth, England.
