Emily Putnam is an interdisciplinary artist and scholar

Emily Putnam (EL Putnam) is an interdisciplinary artist and scholar 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. She has been a member of the Mobius Artists Group since 2009.  Her research interests include late 20th and 21st century aesthetics, performance art, gender and cultural studies.
