J Knoblach


J Knoblach lives and works in New Orleans but was born in Slidell near Honey Island Swamp. The combination of running cross country and track and studying feminist body art led to an interdisciplinary practice rooted in performance. Byproducts of a physical action may become sculpture, photography, video, or text. In some instances, the audience is invited to interact directly with the work, such as the installation "Dial Zero." Solo exhibitions include 'Magenta Alert' at Staple Goods (2017) and 'Welcome to the #socialartwork' at Good Children Gallery (2014). Group exhibitions include Artsy via LeMieux Galleries, Contemporary Arts Center New Orleans, the Ogden Museum, the Louisiana State Museum, the New York Transit Museum, the Museum of Modern Art in NY, Makeshift Museum in L.A., Museo de la Ciudad de México, LABOR Gallery in Mexico, Pari Passu Gallery in Queens, UNO St. Claude Gallery, Barrister's Gallery, The Front Gallery, Antenna Gallery, Boyd Satellite Gallery, and Fossil Free Fest. Publications include 101 Contemporary Artists, New Orleans Art Review, Artvoices Magazine, and special collections include Koç University (Istanbul), the Collins C. Diboll Library (New Orleans), as well as in private homes. Knoblach is a member of Staple Goods Gallery off of St. Claude Ave.
