Carlin Wing is an artist and first year doctoral student in Media, Culture and Communication at NYU. She received her AB in Visual and Environmental Studies and Social Anthropology from Harvard and her MFA in Photography and Media from CalArts. Her current work brings together three disciplines—photography, anthropology and athletics—to address colonial histories, globalization and the potential for individual bodies to assert agency within overdetermined structures. Wing has presented photography, video, installation, performance, writing and lectures in national and international contexts. Recently, she has lectured at the Birmingham Museum of Art; drafted a proposal for a collaborative MFA program in Nashville; organized Bizarre Animals, an evening of contemporary art interventions at the Harvard Museum of Natural History; performed at the Media, Culture, and Communication graduate conference; and presented Hitting Walls (v.XV): Making a Ball, a ball-making workshop, at Machine Project, Los Angeles.

As content developer and researcher at The SIP – Shalom Shpilman institute for photography, my main focus lies in understanding transition of knowledge through images and the impact technology has over epistemic perception. In particular, I’m researching the inherent transformation that photographed image is going through in media, technology, art, the public sphere and day-to-day lives.
I am an MA student at The Cohn Institute for History and Philosophy of Sciences and Ideas, Tel Aviv University. My thesis (advisor: Dr. Hagi Kenaan) is devoted to Jean-Luc Nancy’s conceptualization of the memory and the immemorial in the image.
I further complemented my theoretical work by initiating, producing and curating international and local art events, both as an independent entrepreneur and as the producer of MoBY – Museums of Bat Yam; an international contemporary art museum located in a struggling urban environment.
As an independent producer and curator, I also took part in conceptualizing and conceiving the international project 3 Cities against the Wall, featuring 60 artists from New York, Ramallah and Tel Aviv. During the last decade, I worked as a journalist, both as a writer and an editor, in some of Israel’s leading newspapers and online magazines.
