Allison Halter (she/her) is a conceptual artist and witch. Using performance, video, sound, and photography, Halter explores themes of physical and psychic accumulation and calls into question audience expectations. Repetitive actions hint at mysterious prior events. The viewer must extrapolate the significance of these proliferating gestures, which take on a deeper emotional charge as they slowly and inexorably pile up.

Halter’s projects have been exhibited nationally at Fruitlands Museum (MA), Echo Park Film Center (CA), Basilica Hudson (NY), Walker Art Center (MN), Knockdown Center (NY), Rapid Pulse International Performance Art Festival (IL), Artists’ Television Access (CA), Experimental Film Festival Portland (OR), and internationally at Galerie im Körnerpark (DE), dOCUMENTA(13) (DE), Titanik Galleria, (FI), and MUU Performance Voyage (FI).

She received her Master of Fine Arts in Visual Studies from the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon.
