Tali Keren is a multidisciplinary artist and educator born in Jerusalem and based in Brooklyn. Her performances, videos, and installations center on the formation of political ideology, historical mythologies, and the ongoing legacies of settler colonialism. Through poetic interventions into archival sources, legislative documents, and the creation of immersive documentary installations, Keren seeks to unsettle foundational national myths. Her practice is grounded in collaboration, cross-disciplinary dialogue, and experimental pedagogy as a way to forge new forms of collectivity and political imaginaries. Keren’s recent solo exhibitions include the Queens Museum, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Detroit; Eyebeam, New York; the Center for Contemporary Art, Tel-Aviv; Ludlow 38, MINI Goethe Institute, New York; and James Gallery at CUNY Graduate Center, New York (forthcoming). Group shows and performances include Tallinn Photomonth Biennale; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Anthology Film Archives, New York; the Museum of the Moving Image, New York; New York; Tel Aviv Museum, Tel Aviv, Socrates Sculpture Park, New York; the Jewish Museum, New York; Museums Quartier, Vienna; Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen; the Israeli Center for Digital Art, Holon; Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art; and on the screens of Times Square as part of Time Square’s Arts Midnight Moment. Her work has been featured in Art Forum, The New Yorker, The New York Times, Vice, Hyperallergic, Flash Art, and WNYC's Brian Lehrer Show. Keren received her BFA in 2009 from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem, and an MFA from Columbia University, in New York in 2016. She has been an artist in residence at Art-Port, Tel Aviv, ISCP, NARS Foundation, and BRICworkspace. Keren is currently an artist-in-residence at the Queens Museum, New York and ISCP, NYC.
