Amanda Martin Katz is a Los Angeles-based artist, writer and facilitator whose work explores the social, spatial, and performative embodiment of text. She works both independently and collaboratively to produce texts, objects, text-objects, video installations, performances, and dialogic facilitations. For the past 6 years, she has been designing and operating conceptual residency projects that explore collaborative inquiry and embodied research methodologies (in Katz’s Deli, since 2012, and BOOKSHELVES, since 2016). Her work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions across the United States and in London. She received a BA from Colgate University and a MFA from Otis College of Art and Design.

She is currently performing a 3-year embodied practice of her commercial manufacturing lease (Zone CM-2) at 3307 W Washington Blvd in the Arlington Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles. For more information visit the project website.
