Erika Vogt (b. 1973, East Newark, NJ) is a sculptor who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She received her MFA from California Institute of the Arts and her BFA from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts in New York City. Vogt’s sculptures have taken the form of large-scale installations and collaborative theatrical projects. She works materially across mediums and shifts back and forth from an emphasis on form to surface. Objects act as a catalyst for movement of the human figure. Her most recent work draws on ancient art history.
Past institutional solo exhibitions have included the New Museum in New York, the Hepworth Wakefield in West Yorkshire, and Triangle France in Marseille. Her work has been exhibited and screened at institutions including MIT’s List Visual Arts Center, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Hammer Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the Centre Pompidou, Anthology Film Archives, and REDCAT. Theatrical commissions of the Artist Theater Program include The Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2014 and Performa in New York City in 2015. Currently her work is on view at Les Ateliers de Rennes, Biennial of Contemporary Art and will be exhibited in Los Angeles as part of Artist Theater Program: Rattle Road at Overduin and Co., Los Angeles in February, 2019.
