Daniel Peltz

29 / Jul / 15


Daniel Peltz will present in Miércoles De SOMA, two projects that relate to financial and global market systems. One in Indonesia and the other in the United States. Through his public projects and media installations, Peltz explores complex social systems, attempting to provoke ruptures in the socio/cultural fabric through which new ways of being may emerge and be considered. To accomplish these goals, he uses a range of intervention, ethnographic and performance strategies. His projects often take the form of existing social systems to directly engage non-art audiences in the language of critical art practice.  Peltz splits his time between Kalbo, Sweden and Providence, RI USA, where he is a professor of Film/Animation/Video at the Rhode Island School of Design. His recent exhibitions, public interventions and commissioned projects include when we dig, things come up, Tom Price, WA and the Western Australian Museum [2013-15], faith, hope and deficit, Botkyrka Konsthall, Sweden [2013]; The Museum of Forgetting: political is collective, Passagen, Linköping, Sweden [2012]; unrealized gain/loss, Cemeti Art House, Yogyakarta, Indonesia [2011]; and Crossing non-signalized locations, City of Cambridge, MA, United States [2010]. He has been a resident artist at Yaddo, USA; Helsinki International Artist Program, Finland; International Artists Studio Program, Sweden; Artspace, Australia; and Cemeti Art House, Indonesia.
