Media Arts Lecture Series: Whitney Warne Presents“Puffery”


Whitney will present “Puffery,” a body of work that explores the culturally constructed performance and expected behaviors of the modern female. These video and photography documented durational performances question a female’s relationship with exterior presentation and explores the notion that the body is place to perform a version of ourselves, rather than be ourselves. Viewers watch as she exposes her façade––examining it and breaking it down in an effort to negotiate self, power, and control.

Whitney Warne is a multimedia artist living and working in Rochester, NY. She has a MFA in Imaging Arts from Rochester Institute of Technology and is currently teaching Video and Sound at the University of Rochester.  You can find Whitney’s work at
