Wythe Artist Residency – Katya Grokhovsky

Katya Grokhovsky: Bad Acts
Doors at 630pm
Free with RSVP to rachael@wythehotel.com

Staged at the Wythe Hotel Cinema as part of Grokhovsky’s interdisciplinary residency, Bad Acts includes five recent video works and live interventions-performances, followed by Q + A. Grokhovsky’s works occupy the liminal space between kitsch and grotesque, examining power, labor hierarchies and notions of beauty, whilst subverting the male gaze through humor.

Katya Grokhovsky was born in Ukraine, raised in Australia and is based in NYC. She is an artist, curator, educator and a Founding Director of The Immigrant Artist Biennial (TIAB) and Feminist Urgent (FU). Grokhovsky holds an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, a BFA from Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne University, Australia and a BA (Honors) in Fashion from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Australia. In addition to the Wythe New Arts Residency, Grokhovsky has received support through numerous residencies and fellowships including The Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) Studios Program, BRICworkspace Residency, Ox-BOW School of Art Residency, Wassaic Artist Residency, Atlantic Center for the Arts, Studios at MASS MoCA, and others.  Her work has been exhibited extensively nationally and internationally.
