Kabir Carter

Work for Live Art Danmark
2011 Performance for Mary Paterson’s workshop.

Kabir created a sound performance in the context of our first seminar on  performative writing with Mary Paterson. His work, a sound piece featuring live processing of sounds picked up from the building of Warehouse 9 where the seminar took place, was reviewed directly during the process by Mary and the participants of her workshop.


About the Artist
Kabir’s work moves between performance and installation, and has been exhibited and featured at museums, art spaces, festivals and biennials throughout the United States and Europe. He holds an MFA from the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College, where he was a Joseph Hartog Fellow. Carter’s “Working Group for Sound in the Expanded Field” was selected as the inaugural project for smARTpower, an international arts program supported by the Bronx Museum of the Arts and the U.S. Department of State.
