Emily DiCarlo

Emily DiCarlo (b. 1985) is an artist, researcher, and writer whose interdisciplinary practice considers site, temporality and collaboration as the foundational principles for meaning-making. Evidenced through video, installation, text and performance, her work connects the infrastructure of time with the intimacy of duration.

Her work has been shown internationally, with most recent exhibitions at the NARS Foundation Main Gallery (Brooklyn, USA), Yamaguchi University (Japan), FADO Performance Art Centre (Toronto, Canada), Art Museum (Toronto, Canada) and SÍM Gallery (Reykjavik, Iceland). Her practice has been supported by the Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council. Her work is represented by Vtape, Canada's largest distributor of video art.

She writes alongside her visual practice, often focusing on the sociopolitical implications of predominant time structures in contrast to alternative temporalities through feminist phenomenology, queer time theory and more-than-human ontologies.
She recently contributed her chapter, “Transcending Temporal Variance: Time Specificity, Long Distance Performance and the Intersubjective Site,” to the current volume of The Study of Time (Brill Publishing). Her work has also been published in The Sociological Review magazine and KronoScope academic journal. She lives and works between Tkarón:to/Toronto, Canada and Lenapehoking/Brooklyn, USA.
