Arturo Vidich
Arturo Vidich is an artist from New York City. Vidich identifies as an inter-media artist working mainly in experimental performance. Vidich’s approach to performance uses technology and movement to identify and reflect upon the way we process information through the body. He is interested in treating the performer’s body and sculptural materials as interchangeable objects, and in the possibilities that emerge out of endurance, resistance, and limitation. His performances often engage the viewer’s assumptions about narrative, form and content. Beginning in 2003, Vidich's performance work has been shown at The Chocolate Factory, Danspace Project at St. Mark’s Church, Movement Research at the Judson Church, Dixon Place, Chashama, DorkBot NYC, and AUNTS. He has also shown in Los Angeles, Belgium, the Netherlands, Ireland, Scotland, and New Zealand. In 2007, Vidich was awarded the first International Artist Residency at the Red Stables, Dublin, Ireland. In 2008, Vidich was awarded the Movement Research Artist Residency. In 2007, he co-founded and now co-directs Culture Push, a nonprofit art organization that brings together diverse professionals to share knowledge and resources. Vidich’s work has been reviewed in the Village Voice and the New York Times, and he has been interviewed by WNYC. His A New Theory of Biology was recently in the Brucennial 2010, and Miseducation and VOLUME at AT1 Projects in Los Angeles. Occasionally Vidich curates performances through Kunstverein, New York. Vidich is a master's candidate at the Interactive Telecommunications Program, NYU Tisch.
