Isabel Lewis

Isabel Lewis (b. 1981, Dominican Republic) is a Dominican-American artist who grew up on a manmade island off the coast of Florida and is based in Berlin since 2009. Lewis is trained in literary criticism, dance, and philosophy. Her work often takes the form of hosted “occasions” (coined by Lewis) – a format situated between the exhibition and theater traditions. Prior to relocating to Berlin, Lewis lived in New York City where she danced for many choreographers and showed her own commissioned works at art spaces and theaters, including the Kitchen, New Museum, and Judson Church. Lewis’s work has been presented at the Serpentine Gallery, Frieze London, and Kunsthalle Basel, amongst others.
