Warren Neidich Bio
About The Artist
Warren Neidich is an interdisciplinary artist whose work transcends aesthetic theory and engages outside fields such as sociology, politics, and cognitive neuroscience. A writer, curator, and organizer, Neidich's work regularly employs participatory elements, such as his recent politically-charged installation, Book Exchange, in which gallery visitors were invited to take a book that had allegedly been censored in exchange for one of their own books, but only one with a red book jacket or cover.
While Neidich's work draws heavily from a variety of academic disciplines, it also reflects the artist's interest in public space and communications. He recently embarked on a year-long exploration of the parking lot as a canvas with artist Elena Bajo. He is also working on a project to subvert advertising tools by displaying neon signs of deadpan art slogans in well-trafficked outdoor plazas.
