KATHIE HALFIN is an interdisciplinary artist, performer and independent curator who graduated with honors in Fine Arts from the School Of Visual Arts.

Halfin's work reflects on personal and politically charged experiences of immigration, labor and gender identity. Her performances explore modes of resistance to oppression through endurance, vulnerability and personal storytelling. Through reenactment of daily routines, visceral encounter with materials, and emotionally charged often conflicting cultural experiences Halfin questions cultural stereotypes and explores how the dominant language could be upturned and questioned.

 Halfin’s performances were presented at the art festivals, institutions and multiple art spaces across New York. Among them Elektron Performance Art Residency 2020, OPAF Online Performance, Sattelite Art Fair: Performance Is Alive 2019, Woodstock Artists Association and Museum 2019, NARS Foundation 2019, White Box Performance Series 2019, Immigrant Artist Biennial Soft Launch: Assembly Room 2019, Itinerant Performance Festival: Smack Mellon 2019, Knockdown Center: Sunday Series 2018, Art In Odd Places Performance Festival 2018,

 Kathie Halfin received scholarships and residencies at (upcoming) Cha North Art Residency, Bronx Museum AIM Biennial 2017, Wassaic Project Residency, and Vermont Studio Center.
