From Lincoln Center to the dairy farm, the opera house to the frozen pond, Ann Carlson's work defies description and category while expanding the context of choreography and performance. Borrowing from the disciplines of choreography, performance, theater, public and conceptual art, Carlson's work is project based and often organized within a series format. Carlson has received over thirty commissions and numerous awards for her artistic work, including a USA Artists Fellowship, a American Masterpiece award, a Fellowship at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Studies, Harvard University, a Guggenheim Fellowship in choreography, a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship, and three awards from the National Choreographic Initiative. She was awarded a Doris Duke Award for New Work, a fellowship from the Foundation for Contemporary Performance, a CalArts/Alpert Award, and she is the recipient of a prestigious three-year choreographic fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. Carlson's collaborative work with video artist, Mary Ellen Strom is in the collections of a number of museums and private collections. Ms. Carlson’s work has been performed and exhibited at a multitude of cultural institutions both nationally and internationally.
