Erin Devine is an artist, critic, curator, and independent scholar based in Washington, DC.  She received her Ph.D. in Art History with a specialization in Contemporary Art from Indiana University.  Her video-based and live performances are characterized by research that addresses patriarchal oppressions of history and culture.  Devine searches for parallels between the past and contemporary social issues, often salvaging lost biographies and culling from historical events to create new narratives through ambiguity and gesture.  Directing materiality in both objects and her own body, the works are representative of her interests, as both an artist and an art historian, in feminist art, body art, video and performativity.
