Symposium Beijing / 30.05 – 01.06. 2014 / CAFA Art MuseumDay 3: CULTURAL DIFFERENCES IN GLOBAL TIMES
Robin Kahn was born in 1961 in New York where she lives and works. She has exhibited since 1989 throughout the US and abroad. She is a painter, a public artist, an editor of anti-copyright artist anthologies a self-published author and an organizer of interactive installations and collective events. All of these activities are integral and complementary to her artistic practice as they explore new ways to engage ideas, to share perspectives and to structure modes of production. In 2012, Kahn was commissioned by dOCUMENTA(13) to create “The Art of Sahrawi Cooking”, an interactive installation and a series of collaborative events with women from Western Sahara. Kahn’s projects have been collected by and/or included in exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia (Madrid), The Brooklyn Museum, The Smithsonian Museum of Women in the Arts, The Whitney Museum of Art, The Brooklyn Museum, The New Museum of Contemporary Art, Kunstlerhaus Bethanien, and The Carnegie-Mellon Museum. She is the recipient of several awards including a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship.
