Emily Weiskopf is an interdisciplinary artist currently living and working in Brooklyn, New York. For the past ten years, Weiskopf has explored abstraction in connection to various universal pathways. While the core of her work is sculpture, painting and drawing, she has expanded her body of work to include video and public installations.
Since receiving her MFA from the Tyler School of Art and BFA from the Hartford Art School, Weiskopf’s work has been featured in Artnet, Gallerist NY, DNAinfo, the Contemporist, Art Nerd, the Hartford Current, the Brooklyn Rail and various blogs. Recently, the NY D.O.T commissioned her for her solo exhibition of Unparallel Way, a public sculpture that debuted in October of 2013 in conjunction with the exhibition Brooklyn Utopias. Unparallel Way has been published in City Embellishment, Urban Design II and has since been exhibited at the Bushnell Sculpture Park, Hartford, CT and became part of CT Governor Malloy's Sculpture Grounds at his residence.
Weiskopf was nominated for the Rome Prize in 2011 and has been awarded numerous fellowships and residencies including the Artist Pension Trust, Vermont Studio Center and the Wassiac Project. Weiskopf's works are represented in both private and public collections. She is currently in the Final Rounds for an upcoming NYC Public Art Project and teaches at the City University of New York at Fashion Institute of Technology.
