Dan Paz is an artist and educator who explores the labor of digital imaging production as a collaborative site where the intersections of the image-idea and lived experience are produced and contested. Through videos, photography, and sculptural projects that query the ability of documentary processes to be manipulated—to be multiplied and replicated, stopped and started, rewound and advanced—Dan works within the impossibilities of absolute replication to question the very ability of the image to truly represent. Dan’s work has been shown in international and national galleries, including Fabrica de Arte Cubano, Havana Cuba; I’m with you at Hayward Gallery London, UK; 4th Annual Camaguey Video Festival in Camaguey, Cuba; Band of Outsiders curated by Catherine Sullivan at CAA Media Lab in NY, NY; Immigrant/Emigrant at Angels Gate Cultural Center curated by Lara Bullock in San Pedro, CA; In Chicago, IL: Your body is a Battleground at Weinberg Newton Gallery. Dan presented projects “Untitled, Kodak, HD” and “The New Neutral” in the New Media Caucus at College Art Association in 2017 and will sit as co-chair on the Queer Caucus beginning in 2018. Dan lectures in the Interdisciplinary Visual Arts Program in The School of Art, Art History, and Design, The Contemporary History of Ideas Program, and the Department of Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies at The University of Washington.
