Rachel Dawson is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice involves working with people who operate inside and outside of the art world to question its value-systems and the problems associated with artistic production and authorship. Often within a feminized space of making, she investigates different roles of creativity and agency. Process based, her videos, sculptures, and paintings play with absurdity, notions of liminality, and the space of the imagination. Raised in Southern California, she has lived and worked in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1999. She received her MFA in 2011 from the California College of the Arts in San Francisco. Her work has been exhibited throughout the U.S. and in Canada.
