Genevieve Goffman

Geneive Goffman (b. 1991) documents and demonstrates the distribution of power and the assignment of value through narrative. Her work is concerned with the political manipulation of history and memory and with the potential of individual escape and empowerment through fantasy. Goffman works in a variety of sculpture and print mediums to makes highly engaging and focused interdisciplinary installations and artist book. She brings archives to life to surround her viewer with their subject matter. Her projects have investigated the psychological origins of fascism, the role of fantasy in digital cultures for young queer, gender-nonspecific individuals and women under capitalism and the history of the Bystander Effect.   

Genevieve Goffman was born in Washington D.C. with a motor and processing disabilities that made learning and moving - from remembering her address to tying her shoelaces - a challenge.  At 19, she moved to Portland, OR to study art at Reed College. In Portland, Goffman, organized grassroots activism against sexual assault and facilitated conversations about accountability in leftist communities. Goffman worked with the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) to organize against evictions and to push for housing rights. Goffman earned a BFA from Reed College in 2015 and has since shown her artwork at the Edith Feldenhiemer Gallery, S1, The Melanie Flood Project, The White Gallery, and HQHQ in Portland, OR, and the University of Ideas Cittadellarte in Bielle, Italy. Goffman spoke about the dangers of fascism in the art and fitness worlds at INCA in Seattle, WA, in 2017. Goffman's art, like her writing, focus on the linguistic and the political, incorporating design, installation, poetry, and collage to add new dimensions to her arguments.
