“THE BOSS”
In my recent work, I’ve tried to use art as a means of examining my day job as a university administrator. In this piece, I deconstruct the power of the business suit and the voice that often emerges from it.

Jeffery Byrd (US) is a performance and video artists who has presented work all over the globe. He has exhibited in over 75 group exhibitions and 15 solo exhibitions and has performed at such notable venues as Lincoln Center in New York and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston. Byrd has participated in performance and video festivals in major cities throughout the US and in Germany, Switzerland, Poland, Columbia, Mexico, Italy and the UK. His art explores the metaphoric potential of the human body the relationships between reality and artifice through video, movement, original music and otherworldly vocals.
