Judi Werthein
Judi Werthein is an artist that works across a range of media. She addresses strategies of subordination. Conflating the dominant form with that which it subordinates, her work destabilizes the authority that is often taken as a given. Interpreting identities as flexible, plastic, and untranslatable, Werthein conveys the experience of the outsider through the language of mass culture, re-conceiving Western conventions from an unfamiliar perspective. Her work has been shown at the Tate Modern, London, UK; De Appel, Amsterdam; the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, Ridgefield, Connecticut; the Bronx Museum for the Arts, New York; and the Center for Contemporary Art, Vilnius, Lithuania. Werthein has also participated in Manifesta 7, Bolzano, Italy; InSite_05, San Diego/Tijuana; the Bienal de Pontevedra, Galicia; and the 7th Bienal de La Habana, Havana, among others. She is the founder and co-director with Graciela Hasper and Roberto Jacoby of El Centro de Investigaciones Artisticas in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
