Residency and materials support from Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and Materials for the Arts.


Andros Zins-Browne (b.1981, New York) works at the intersection of performance and dance. His work extends choreographic notions into encounters with dancers, nondancers, singers, objects, and texts. Since 2016, his performance Already Unmade where he de-hearses previous works, ‘unmaking’ them, has been presented at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Rockbund Art Museum, Shanghai; and Lafayette Anticipations, Fondation Galeries Lafayette, Paris. In 2019, Atlas Unlimited, a series of exhibitions in collaboration with artist Karthik Pandian, was featured at the PERFORMA19 Biennial, New York, and as a series of music videos currently on the Criterion Channel. In 2020/21, his work was commissioned for online projects by Danspace Project, the Aspen Art Museum, and Triple Canopy. In 2022, Zins-Browne premiered color a body who flees, a collaborative sound installation and performance series at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles. A series of performance remixes include The Tony Cokes Remixes, 10th Berlin Biennale (2018), Dia Art Foundation (2023); See-Saw, (with Will Rawls) MoMA, New York (2019) and Asymmetry 222 (with Phoebe Berglund), Getty Museum, Los Angeles by Simone Forti; and Jérôme Bel, 1995 (2020) KADIST, Paris, in collaboration with e-flux. With Ley, Kris Lee and a host of co-conspirators, Zins-Browne premiered duel C (River-To-River Festival, 2023) a performance that ascended Outlook Hill on Governors Island, in a choreography commingling violence and care. Zins-Browne is the recipient of awards from the Goethe-Institut; Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts; Ministry of Culture of the Flemish Community; and New York State Council on the Arts.
