Rebecca Sylvia Posner is a multi-media artist working across disciplines of drawing, writing, experimental music and performance. She creates solo and collaborative works that explore human myth-making and mine the boundary between internal and shared experience.
Also an educator, yogic bodyworker, and great lover of the strange and unusual, Rebecca’s projects include radical learning experiences and out-of-the-ordinary event production. Her creations and happenings have occurred within such entities as the Brooklyn Museum, a Queens storefront, an antique diner, ATM vestibule, turn-of-the-century hotel, bookstore basement, and various other art havens in NYC and beyond.
She holds an MFA in Performance and Interactive Media Arts from Brooklyn College, as well as an MA in Education from Clark University. She is the founder of SOMA School, a mobile embodied learning project that explores the intersection of art practices and healing modalities, which will have its first residency at De-Construkt [projekts] in June 2018.
A decade-long Brooklyn resident, Rebecca wandered into DE-CONSTRUKT on a whim back in 2013. She was immediately inspired by the possibilities of the space and the experimental vision of its community. Since then, Rebecca has worked with DE-CONSTRUKT to produce a range of events from an experimental music series to a re-wilding dinner and a giant indoor picnic artist salon. She’s delighted to be curator-in-residence for the months of May and June 2018, where she is producing the first series of SOMA School, a mobile embodied learning project that explores the intersection of art practices and healing modalities. She is simultaneously pursuing development of her own work alongside the resident artists, whose unique disciplines and cultural perspectives shed new light on her personal process and socio-political context.
