A.K. Burns is an interdisciplinary artist and educator based in Brooklyn, NY. Using video, sculpture and installation she produces queries into the socio-political constructs that give form and meaning to contemporary notions of the body. Currently, Burns is developing Negative Space, a cycle of five video installations that take speculative fiction as a point of departure. The third installment is commissioned by EMPAC at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. Burns’ work has been exhibited internationally at the New Museum, NY; the Tate Modern, London; The Museum of Modern Art, NY; The Sculpture Center, NY; and Los Angeles County Museum of Art, CA. Burns was a 2016-17 Radcliffe Fellow at Harvard University and a recipient of a 2015 Creative Capital Foundation Visual Arts Award. Burns currently teaches at Hunter College Graduate Department of Art & Art History, and in the Sculpture Department at NYU Steinhardt.
