• Profile:

    Beau Rhee is an internationally exhibiting artist, designer & choreographer based in New York City. Based on gesture and mise en scène, her studio Atelier de Geste produces a broad range of multi-media work, such as metal objects, textile pieces, drawings, scents. Rhee' practice connects movements and material objects to create moments of primal connection to body-space, the senses, and thus our biology & ecosystem. Rhee works frequently in collaboration with other artists, hence the collective studio name. In 2017, she has shown work at Kaaitheatre Brussels, MoMA/PS1, Slought Foundation & the Bard Graduate Center Gallery. She has lectured at the Swiss Master Symposium for the Arts, Parsons School of Design, ICP & Bard College.
