—  About

Dorsey Kaufmann is an artist living in Tucson, Arizona.

Dorsey Bromwell Kaufmann actively challenges interdisciplinary boundaries by investigating the parallels and intersections between art, science, and policy.

She works in time-based media; such as video, performance art, and 3-D installations. Her practice examines the emotional, philosophical, and legal tensions between the individual and the institutions wielding political and corporate power. Reflecting on the minutiae of how society is choreographed, she considers the design and sequencing of daily life by questioning the freedoms and limitations assigned to movement. She is interested in the way art can be used to translate our surrounding environment and reveal the complex histories of place.

Dorsey has received numerous awards for her artwork, including the University of Arizona School of Art’s Marcia Grand Centennial Sculpture Award, the UA College of Fine Art’s Medici Scholar Award, and the French National Center’s Interdisciplinary and Global Environmental Studies Award. She has presented her work at the Biosphere 2, Tucson Museum of Contemporary Art, Duderstadt Gallery in Michigan, Arts in the Public Sphere National Conference in Boston, MA, and Arts Environments National Conference in Athens, GA, and for the College Art Association in New York and Los Angeles. She has published in the International Journal of Science Education (co-author) and the Journal of Risk Research (first author).

She is an MFA candidate in the School of Art at the University of Arizona and works in Dr. Ramírez-Andreotta’s Integrated Environmental Science and Health Risk Laboratory.
