Stephanie Acosta

Stephanie Acosta is a multidisciplinary artist focused on the exploration of the experiential, incorporating concrete objects, created environments, solo and ensemble performances, along with experimental and documentary filmmaking as modes of inquiry. By placing the materiality of the ephemeral at the root of her practice, Acosta questions the making of immovable meanings in our manufactured limitations.  Acosta’s first feature film, The Ladies Almanack, based on the writing of Djuna Barnes, premiered at Outfest 2017. I AM A POTTED PALM, a solo looking at self tokenizing and the sanctity of sincerity, recently performed in Miami and Aqui y Alla, an object theatre exhibition for Vox Populi in collaboration with J. Soto, focused on contradicting Latinx experiences and the failures of translating our selves.
