Jeremiah Day

28 October 2019

Jeremiah Day (1974, USA) studied art at the University of California, Los Angeles (US, 1997), and subsequently completed the residency program at the Rijksakademie (2003-2004). As a visual artist, Jeremiah Day is also trained in movement, working regularly with the pioneer of postmodern dance Simone Forti. His work establishes a montage/narrative form, where political and personal realities intertwine through different techniques, including photography, video and movement. Day is represented by Arcade, London and Ellen de Bruijne Projects in Amsterdam. In 2017, Jeremiah Day earned a doctorate from the University of Amsterdam (VU) with the presentation of ‘A Kind of Imagination that has Nothing to Do with Fiction: Art in Public Life.’, a practice based project, drawing upon Hannah Arendt and Allan Kaprow as the basis for renewed exploration of art’s role in civil society.
