Josť Carlos Teixeira
Title Champney Family Professor of Art
José Carlos Teixeira is currently the Champney Family Visiting Professor at Case Western Reserve University Art History department, and at the Cleveland Institute of Art. His interdisciplinary work involves primarily video-essay, photography, installation, text, and performance. Notions of identity, otherness, language, boundary, exile and displacement, are recurrent themes in his creative and theoretical investigation. Through performative strategies, his pieces explore issues related to locational identity, global diaspora, the limits (or overlapping) of personal and social territories, and the definition of physical and psychological spaces. They attempt to generate not a set of conclusions, but a continuous process of inquiry. Usually coming from a subjective and contextual approach, the artist focuses on collaboration, participation, and dialogue, therefore incorporating multiple voices into his moving image projects.
His work has been shown in exhibitions, festivals, and screenings both in Europe (Portugal, Spain, France, Belgium, Germany, UK, Norway, Sweden, Russia, and Lithuania) and in the USA (New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Cleveland, Atlanta, Tucson, Madison, to name a few), as well as in Brazil, Singapore, China, Mozambique, Angola, and South Africa. Teixeira has been the recipient of the Fulbright Grant, Gulbenkian Foundation Grant, UCLA Fellowship, Samuel Booth Award, D’Arcy Hayman Award, Fuso Video Festival Jury Prize 2011, and the 2005 EDP New Artists Prize nomination. In 2008-09, he was a fellow at the Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart, and he recently developed residency projects at the MacDowell Colony (NH), and the Headlands Center for the Arts (CA).
