Desirée Holman

See(d) Artist Series is proud to announce Desirée Holman as the first See(d) studio artist on Saturday, November 10, 2018. See(d) visitors receive a ‘behind the scenes’ look into two exciting, in-progress bodies of work: an expansive video project entitled The Third Place and a series of small scale, ceramic figurative sculptures exploring human interdependence and fragility. 

Desirée Holman is an accomplished interdisciplinary artist focused in the fields of expanded cinema, performance, public artworks as well as traditional gallery works. 

Holman received a San Francisco Modern Museum of Art SECA Award in 2008 and Artadia: The Fund for Art and Dialogue award in 2007. From 2016-2017, Holman returned to SFMOMA as a fellow in the Film & Performance Department with a new works commission, Sophont in Action.

Holman’s Become a Sci-Fi Character was featured on KQED’s The Art Assignment in conjunction with her video project, Sophont, in which the artist designed wearable, sculptural ‘psionics’ to enhance her characters’ sensory abilities.
