Ita Segev

2018/20 Artist In Residence

Ita Segev makes performance, writes, performs, acts and does advocacy & community building work, mainly around the intersection of her personal and sociopolitical contexts as an anti-Zionist Israeli trans woman.

Ita is a 2019 Gibney presents Artist in Residence where she is premiering her show ‘Knot In My Name’  which was developed through a 2018-2019 Brooklyn Arts Exchange Artist in Residence program, a 2018 New York theater workshop summer residency and a Fall 2017 BAX space grant.

Ita recently collaborated in different capacities with Tristan Powell, 600 HIGHWAYMEN, Shakina Nayfack, Lillieth Glimcher & RAD Pereira (You Are Here), J. Bouey, Juliana May, and Daryn Copland.
