Biography

Vito Acconci is an installation, performance and video artist, architect, and landscape architect, born and living in New York. He received a B.A. from the College of the Holy Cross in 1962 and an M.F.A. from the University of Iowa. Acconci became a performance and video artist in the late 1960s and early 1970s, using his own body as a subject for photography, film, video, and performance. His performance and video work was marked heavily by confrontation. In the mid 1970s, Acconci expanded his metier into the world of audio/visual installations.
