and works in Brooklyn, NY and Kingston, NY.
McDermid is a multimedia artist and curator working in performance, sound,
video and installation. Her works are autobiographical, using elements of where
she is or components of her life as inspiration for work, with the belief that
the personal is also political. During the early 2000s she created a series of
works entitled American Woman Parts 1-8,
exploring the American psyche, from a woman’s perspective, while traveling to various
countries and encountering varying perspectives on American foreign policies. Her
recent work is taking on a wider perspective related to our relationship with
Nature, exploring the resurgence of civilizations, their varying knowledge and
their effects upon the earth. McDermid is Director and Curator of the Grace
Exhibition Space for International Performance Art in Brooklyn.
VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK, McDermid will present Woman on a Cross, a performance
art piece that asks the question: would a female savior have been more threatening than the male savior?
