About the Artist

Jules Gimbrone (b. 1982 Pittsburgh; lives and works in NYC) is an artist and composer who asks how social performance is codified, captured, and transmitted. Gimbrone uses a variety of recording and amplifying technologies, in addition to materials like glass, clay, ice, mold, and the processes of decomposition, to investigate how sound travels through space, bodies, and language as a way of exploring sublimated gendered systems, and to expose the multiple queerings of the performative and pre-formative body. Gimbrone’s performances and installations have appeared at such venues as ISSUE Project Room, the Rubin Museum, MOMA PS1, Human Resources LA, Park View Gallery, Vox Populi, Théâtre de l’Usine, Geneva, Switzerland. Gimbrone received an MFA in Music Composition and Integrated Media from CalARTS in 2014.
