Zoe McCloskey (b. 1983) is interested in re-evaluating the authority of artistic voice by manifesting artworks whose form expands the definition of an art practice. Her former practice largely consisted of wheat-paste street art and community art projects. Her current focus is science-researched performances. She received her BFA from Cooper Union and her MFA in Social Practice from California College of the Arts. She has exhibited in NYC, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Portland, and San Francisco; and has collaborated on community art projects in El Salvador, Argentina, Mexico, and Belize. The work she developed in recent years involves the enlistment of science advisors from the California Bay Area and takes the form of lecture-style performances or audio sculptures, for which she appropriates contemporary genetics and neuroscience.
