Jeremiah Day is an artist whose work employs photography, speech, and body language to re-examine political conflicts and resistances, unfolding their subjective traces. Day studied under and often collaborates with postmodern dance pioneer Simone Forti, using her improvisational research-moving-talking method as an open-ended, unfolding, embodied form of questioning.
He graduated from the Art Department of the University of California, Los Angeles and attended the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam. In 2019-2020, Jeremiah Day holds a Post-Doctoral Fellowship at Uniarts Helsinki’s Center for Educational Research and Academic Development in the Arts (CERADA), developing an investigation into the teaching and facilitating models that emerge from the intersection of dance and visual art.
Upcoming solo exhibitions include the Badischer Kunstverein in Karlsruhe and the Villa Romana in Florence, where Day will organize a large scale ensemble public performance. Day is represented by Arcade, London and Ellen de Bruijne Projects, Amsterdam.
