Artists Studio: Joan Jonas

“[Joan] Jonas set an example both as a female artist and as someone who made the medium of video a subject of her art.”
The New York Times

A pioneer of performance and video art, multimedia artist Joan Jonas works in video, performance, installation, sound, text, sculpture, and drawing, collaborating with musicians and dancers on improvisational works for both museums and theatrical stages. Drawing on mythic stories from various cultures, Jonas invests texts from the past with the politics of the present and disrupts the conventions of theatrical storytelling. Trained in art history and sculpture, Jonas was a central figure in the performance art movement of the late 1960s, and her work continues to inspire development in many contemporary art genres, from performance and video to conceptual art and theater.


The 2022 Artists Studio series is supported in part by public funds from the National Endowment for the Arts.
