Cori Olinghouse is an interdisciplinary artist working at the intersection of performance, archives, and visual storytelling. In 2017 she founded The Portal, a living archives initiative and research studio dedicated to reimagining the archiving and contextualizing of performance practices and embodied histories in motion. Her approach to performance archives has been celebrated at the Museum of Modern Art, Duke University, Bard College, and Wesleyan University. As part of this work, she’s engaged in a constellation of projects with artist Autumn Knight, choreographers Jean Butler, Yanira Castro, Mina Nishimura, Kota Yamazaki, Rashaun Mitchell + Silas Riener, Melinda Ring, Gwen Welliver, and performance artist Sylvia Palacios Whitman. Recently, she collaborated with video artist Charles Atlas on a moving image installation of Trisha Brown’s archival materials for Judson Dance Theater: The Work is Never Done, an exhibition for the Museum of Modern Art. Formerly, as archive director for the Trisha Brown Dance Company, she developed a multi-year cataloging and preservation initiative to assist in the legacy planning for Brown’s company and archive (2009-2018), a company she danced for from 2002-2006. Her performance work has been commissioned by Danspace Project, New York Live Arts, BRIC Arts Media, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Movement Research, and Brooklyn Museum of Art. She holds an MA in Performance Curation from the Institute for Curatorial Practice in Performance at Wesleyan University, and serves as visiting faculty at the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College.
