Isabel Lewis

1981 · Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

Isabel Lewis is an artist and dancer working on the aesthetics of the experiential, creating spaces of sociable encounter between human and nonhuman agents in the format she has named the hosted occasion. Lewis’ multi-sensorial occasions have been presented internationally most recently by Creative Time and Art Basel, Tate Modern London, Dia Foundation, and Martin Gropius Bau in Berlin amongst others. Concerned with notions of embodiment and hospitality her practice extends itself to include work as an editor, programmer, curator, and teacher in formats that hold space for experimentation with alternative modes of sociability.
