Kristofor Giordano was born in Newton New Jersey in 1985, and grew up in the post-industrial town of Franklin, New Jersey. He graduated with a BFA in Fine Art from The School of Visual Arts in 2007. Giordano’s approach to art-making encompasses film, photography, drawing, writing, performance, and multimedia sculpture.
In 2008, Giordano held his first studio at PS122, located in Manhattan’s East Village neighborhood. While developing his studio practice, Giordano cultivated a background in film, philosophy, religion, psychology, and social theory—studying Critical Theory at the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research, and Psychology and Comparative Religions at Hunter College.
In October 2012, Giordano’s work was included in a group show of emerging artists selected by: Luca Buvoli, Cai Guo Qiang, Zarina Hashmi, Joan Jonas, Michael Joo, Donald Sultan, Kara Walker, and Nari Ward.
Between 2013 and 2015, Giordano held studios and residences throughout New York and New Jersey while beginning to film Astrologer in Reverse. Towards the end of 2015, Giordano began refurbishing a Brooklyn warehouse space—where he currently lives and works—into an artist studio and performance space.
In October, 2017, Giordano was invited by Some Serious Business to be an Artist-in-Residence in Abiqiui, New Mexico.
