Natalie Bookchin

Associate Chair of the Visual Arts Department, Associate Professor in Media

Natalie Bookchin's artwork explores some of the far-reaching consequences of digital technologies on a range of spheres, including aesthetics, labor, leisure, and politics. Recent videos and video installations address the ramifications of mass connectivity and global flows of images on identity, desire, and the truths we tell about ourselves and the world. Her work is exhibited widely including at MoMa, LACMA, PS1, Mass MOCA, the Walker Art Center, the Pompidou Centre, MOCA Los Angeles, the Whitney Museum, the Tate, and Creative Time. She has received numerous grants and awards, including from Creative Capital, California Arts Council, the Guggenheim Foundation, the Durfee Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, California Community Foundation, the Daniel Langlois Foundation, a COLA Artist Fellowship, the Center for Cultural Innovation, and most recently, the MacArthur Foundation.
