Faith Wilding, a co-founder of the feminist art movement in Southern California, is a multidisciplinary artist, writer, and educator. She is professor emerita of performance art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and, since 1992, a member of the graduate faculty of the Vermont College of Fine Arts. She has exhibited in solo and group shows for 40 years in the United States, Canada, Europe, Mexico, and Southeast Asia. Her work addresses the recombinant and distributed bio-tech body in various media including 2-D, video, digital media, installations, and performances. Wilding co-founded, and collaborates with, subRosa, a reproducible cyberfeminist cell of cultural researchers who use BioArt and tactical performance in the public sphere to explore and critique the intersections of information and biotechnologies in women’s bodies, lives, and work.
