Headshot of Jody Wood

Jody Wood’s work is time- and performance-based, utilizing video, installation, performance, and community organizing to address socially charged topics. Working one-on-one with members of her community, her work aims to collab- oratively uncover and meaningfully interpret transitional experiences such as death, trauma, and social isola- tion. Her work has been honored with grant support from New York Council for the Humanities, Rema Hort Mann Foundation, Brooklyn Arts Council, and residencies with Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, and McColl Center for Art + Innovation. In 2014, she was a Socially Engaged Art Fellow with A Blade of Grass. Her work has been exhibited internationally, and featured in publications such as The Atlantic, Hyperallergic, and MSNBC.
