Joseph Liatela

New York , NY


Joseph Liatela is an interdisciplinary artist based in New York City. He is fascinated with how spaces of gathering shape how we perceive ourselves and one another, as well as and how absence, loss, and possibility intersect. Using performance, sculpture, and video, he makes work that examines issues of memorial, trans and queer subjectivities, biopolitics, and collective movement. Liatela earned a BFA with distinction from California College of the Arts and an MFA in Visual Art from Columbia University. He has been awarded grants and fellowships from the Zellerbach Family Foundation, Vermont Studio Center, The Banff Centre, Columbia University, Artist Grant, the Van Lier Fellowship, and was a finalist for the Found Work Artist Prize in 2021. His work has been shown at Marian Goodman Gallery, Denniston Hill, Human Resources LA, The Jewish Museum, The Leslie-Lohman Museum, The Monmouth Museum, PS122, Marli Motsumoto São Paulo, and Proyecto Galería CDMX, among others.
