Bio

Marina Rosenfeld is a New York-based artist and composer. She works at the intersection of performance, installation and experimental notation, often occupying monumental sites with live and recorded sound and deploying performers as choirs, orchestras and other hybrid ensembles. Her work has been presented at numerous institutions, festivals, and museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, Guggenheim Museum and the Park Avenue Armory in New York; the Whitney (2002 and 2008), Montreal (2016), Liverpool (2011) and PERFORMA (2009 and 2011) biennials; the Holland Festival, Tate Modern, Stejdlijk Museum, Vienna Secession, Wien Modern, and many others. Projects in 2017 include solo exhibitions at Portikus (Frankfurt) and the Bard Center for Curatorial Studies (New York), as well as commissioned works for Documenta 14 (“Every Time A Ear Di Soun”) and Donaueschingen Musiktage. Rosenfeld has performed as a pianist and experimental turntablist since the late '90s, working with an ever-expanding palette of hand-crafted dub plates, alongside such collaborators as Christian Marclay, George Lewis, Okkyung Lee and Warrior Queen. She has created music for choreographers Maria Hassabi, Ralph Lemon and Merce Cunningham, and co-chairs the department of Music/Sound at the Milton Avery School of the Arts at Bard College.
