video still by EL Putnam
EL Putnam is an interdisciplinary artist who works predominately in photography, video, and performance art. Just as she utilizes a variety of media in her artistic practice, her work too draws from multiple themes and sources, including travel and tourism, materialism, and explorations of gender and sexuality. These ideas become intertwined through notions of personal and cultural circumspection.
EL has received a B.F.A. from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, a B.A. from Tufts University in International Relations, and an M.A. from Simmons College in Gender and Cultural Studies. She is currently in the process of completing a Ph.D. in Aesthetics, Art Theory, and Philosophy at the Institute for Doctoral Studies in the Visual Arts. At the moment, she teaches at Emerson College in the Visual and Media Arts Department.
