MARK FOX
Mark Fox received an MFA in painting from Stanford University and a BFA from Washington University in St. Louis. For the past fifteen years, Fox has been creating multimedia installations as well as performances in contemporary puppet/ object theater. In 2003 Fox created DUST, a multimedia exhibit commissioned for the inaugural exhibition of the new wing at the Cincinnati Art Museum (CAM) that featured an installation of over 2500 separate cut-out drawings of the artist’s personal belongings. One of the four videos from this exhibit, Forty Days (Elegy for the Great Hall), is currently showing at The Speed Museum of Art in Louisville, KY. Fox’s multimedia work has also been exhibited in solo and group shows at Cincinnati’s Contemporary Art Center, New Rathaus Gallery (Munich), Jeleni Gallery (Prague), The Detroit Institute of Art, Sonoma Museum of Visual Art, The Headlands Center for Art, Miami University (Oxford OH), Kent State University, Weston Gallery of Art (Cincinnati) and various commercial galleries in the Midwest. In 2000, Fox’s single-frame animated puppet film, Toy, was selected for the Super Super Eight 2000 Film Festival, touring cities throughout North America, Europe and Japan.

Since 1998 Fox has been the Executive Artistic Director of Saw Theater, a performance ensemble that blurs the boundaries between theater, visual art, music, and installation. Saw Theater has given performances of original work in New York at the Theater for the New City, Thread Waxing Space and P.S.122. Other regional venues include: The Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, Kenyon College, and The Philadelphia Fringe Festival. In 1999, Fox collaborated with poet David Zaza to create the web-broadcast puppet theatre production The Kiss, produced as part of The Future of the Present Series at Franklin Furnace. Fox designed and oversaw the operation of large-scale puppets for Cincinnati opera,s production of Charles Gounod’s Faust in 1999.
