Kim Brandt's work in choreography asks motion to answer questions about how a body can be, and explores how a coming together can alter the tone of our environment. Her “smart, affecting, weird-form dances never take for granted the bodily habits or functional protocols of modern choreography and its users” (David Velasco, Artforum).
Brandt received the prestigious Foundation for Contemporary Arts in 2017 and was an Artist-in-Residence at Issue Project Room (2015); Movement Research (2016-17); and was a Fellow at the Bogliasco Foundation (2016). She is the recipient of THE AWARD: NYC (2015), and the Jerome Foundation Travel and Study Grant (2016), which was used to research the work of Robert Smithson, Nancy Holt, Michael Heizer, and Walter de Maria.
Her works include Untitled (Kitchen) (The Kitchen, New York, 2014); Silhouette (Ice Box Gallery, Philadelphia, 2015); Landscapes (Audio Visual Arts Gallery, New York, 2015); Untitled (Artists Space) (Artists Space, New York, 2015); Clear Night (Pioneer Works, Brooklyn, 2016); and The Volume (SculptureCenter, Long Island City, 2017).
