Nancy Popp is a Los Angeles-born and -based artist, writer, educator and organizer. Holding degrees from ArtCenter and San Francisco Art Institute, Popp’s work draws upon the rich traditions of durational, corporeal performance and political intervention to explore relations between body as site, the context of site that envelopes the body, and the constant fluctuations that connect the two. Her practice engages both architectural and public space to wrestle with political and social boundaries of geography and identity. Popp’s work has been exhibited at venues worldwide, including MOCA, The Getty Center, Atlanta Contemporary Arts Center, and the 2011 Istanbul Biennia in addition to nonprofits, galleries and public spaces in Belgrade, Düsseldorf, Tijuana, Buenos Aires, London and Berlin. Recent residencies and fellowships include the 2011 California Community Foundation Visual Arts Fellowship, the Lucas Artist Fellowship at Montalvo Arts Center, and Despina/Largo das Artes in Rio de Janeiro.
