video still by EL Putnam
EL Putnam is an artist-philosopher who works predominately in performance art and digital media. Just as she utilizes a variety of media in her artistic practice, her work too draws from multiple themes and sources, including travel and tourism, materialism, and explorations of gender and sexuality. These ideas become intertwined through notions of personal and cultural circumspection.
EL has a B.F.A. from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, a B.A. from Tufts University in International Relations, an M.A. from Simmons College in Gender and Cultural Studies, and a Ph.D. in Aesthetics, Art Theory, and Philosophy from the Institute for Doctoral Studies in the Visual Arts. At the moment, she teaches at the Dublin School of Creative Arts at Dublin Institute of Technology in Ireland.
