"Here: Work Now and Before" on Tuesday, Sept. 1 at 5:15 p.m. in Nevins Auditorium

Ann Carlson borrows from the disciplines of dance, performance, theater, visual and conceptual art, often dismantling conventional boundaries between artist and subject. Carlson’s work takes the form of solo dance/performance, site-specific projects, ensemble theatrical works, and performance/video. She often works within a series format, creating socially engaged performance structures over a period of years that adapt and tour to multiple sites.

Carlson is the recipient of over30 commissions and numerous awards for her artistic work. Her awards include; two American Masters, five Multi-Art Production Fund Grants, a Rockefeller Seed Grant, a USA Artist Fellowship, a Guggenheim Fellowship, a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship, and a Fellowship from the Foundation for Contemporary Art.

She was an artist fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Studies Fellowship/Harvard University and at Stanford University’s Humanities Center.

Carlson has received three awards from the National Choreographic Initiative; a Doris Duke Award for New Work; the first Cal/Arts Alpert Award in Choreography, and a prestigious three-year choreographic fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts.

In 2013, Carlson was invited by the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation to be in residence on Captiva Island, FL. She is currently in residence at the Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA.

Carlson has made a number of performance works with live animals. Horses, dogs, cats, cows, fish, goats have made their way into works by Carlson.

Her current project, "Doggie Hamlet," is a performance with a herding dog, a flock of sheep, and four human performers.

Carlson has had a long-term collaboration with video maker Mary Ellen Strom resulting in several single channel performance videos that are held in several private and museum collections. In addition, Carlson/Strom made several site-specific works, including the large-scale work, Geyserland, in which the audience boarded a train and traveled 25 miles over the Bozeman Pass in Montana viewing projections and performances on the landscape.

Stanford University was both the site and inspiration of Carlson’s latest work, "The Symphonic Body." A performance/orchestral work made entirely of gestures, "The Symphonic Body" will have its second incarnation on UCLA’s campus in November 2015.
