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 Katzā€™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.
