MS in Visual Art
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Caitlin Berrigan works across performance, video, sculpture, and text to engage with the intimate and embodied dimensions of power, politics, and capitalism. Her artist’s book Imaginary Explosions (Broken Dimanche Press, 2018) was the subject of solo exhibitions in Berlin and Schloss Solitude, and her book Unfinished State is forthcoming from Archive Books. Her current body of work, Imaginary Explosions, is a cosmology of science fiction videos that follows an affiliation of transfeminist geologists as they operate in communication with the desires of the mineral earth for radical, planetary transformation. Her work has shown at the Whitney Museum, Art in General, the Poetry Project, Harvard Carpenter Center, Storefront for Art & Architecture, Hammer Museum, Anthology Film Archives, LACMA, Henry Art Gallery, UnionDocs, and the deCordova Museum, among others. Berrigan has received grants and residencies from the Humboldt Foundation, Skowhegan, Graham Foundation, PROGRAM for Art & Architecture Berlin, and Akademie Schloss Solitude. She holds a Master's in visual art from MIT and a B.A. from Hampshire College. She is a researcher at the Academy of Fine Art in Vienna PhD-in-Practice program, and an affiliate of the NYU Tandon School of Engineering Technology, Culture and Society.
