Judith Price



Artist, Dancer, Educator


Judith Price has maintained a transdisciplinary art practice for 30+ years since attending the University of British Columbia (MFA 1988). She also has a 30+ year background in modern dance. Her body of work includes performance pieces, performative videos, video installations, site-specific installations, and short films. She merges parallel backgrounds in visual arts and modern dance to explore non-verbal physical and gestural language as tools of communication and intervention. She has participated in exhibitions, performance festivals, screenings, and symposiums and has both participated in and conducted workshops (most recently on performative video). The British Columbia Arts Council, the Canada Council for the Arts, and the City of Victoria have funded her works and they have been shown nationally and internationally. Her performances display her ongoing exploration of site-specific street actions, interventions, and interactive, collaborative, and durational works. She has also done many solo performances in galleries and at festival events, which have included still images and video projections, found objects, and sculptural objects. She also incorporates performance and video into installations. Price lives on Vancouver Island where she is retired from teaching post-secondary courses in time-based art (performance, video, film) and visual culture. Judith is an uninvited guest on the Lekwungen/Esquimalt, Songhees W?SÁNE? territory currently known as Victoria.
