Chelsea Knight is a video and performance artist working in New York. Knight’s works examine fractures in society such as race, gender and politics, as well as the kinds of social role-playing these fractures bear.

Knight has completed residencies at the Whitney Independent Study Program (2010) and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (2008), and was a Fulbright Fellow in Italy (2007). Her work has been featured in various group shows worldwide. Solo exhibitions and performances include: the New Museum (NYC), The St. Louis Art Museum (MO); The Brooklyn Museum; Aspect Ratio Gallery (Chicago); Momenta Art (Brooklyn); DiverseWorks (Houston) and Julius Caesar Gallery (Chicago).
