Amanda Martin Katz is an artist, writer and facilitator based in Los Angeles, CA. Her work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions across the United States and in London. She received an MFA from Otis College of Art and Design and a BA from Colgate University.
In addition to her text, object, and performance-based practice, Katz engages collaborative inquiry and embodied research methodologies in long term projects, such as the salon and exhibition platform Katz’s Deli (since 2012) and the "thought residency" program BOOKSHELVES (since 2016). Both of these residency-centered platforms operate out of 3307 W Washington Blvd, her studio and event space in the Arlington Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles. 3307 is host to literary events, performances and meals, and has the lifespan of its three-year commercial lease. As a socially engaged project that builds community through the valuing of literacy, 3307 will ultimately find form as a book of its own.
