Fine Arts faculty member Dorit Cypis won a 2014 Guggenheim Fellowship. From more than 3,000 applicants, she is one of 23 fine arts awardees. Cypis uses performative strategies, photography, and social sculpture to explore the psycho-physical-social aspects of history, knowledge and experience. At its heart, the work exposes both paradox and possibility. Exhibitions include the Whitney Museum of American Art, International Center of Photography, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Orange County Museum, Walker Art Center, Musee d'Art Contemporain/Montreal, Musee des Beaux Arts/Bruxelles, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Orange County Museum of Art, in addition to international galleries and artist spaces.


Cypis has taught on identity, representation, social relations, and conflict transformation at universities and colleges across the USA as well as in Canada, Holland, France, Switzerland, and Israel. She has been instrumental in designing public programs including Kulture Klub Collaborative, Minneapolis, 1992-1998, artists working with homeless youth to develop their capacity for creative expression, and Foundation for Art Resources, FAR, Los Angeles, 1979-1982, assisting artists to work collectively and to situate art in the public domain. Cypis founded Foreign Exchanges in 2007, developing tools of engagement across personal and cultural differences. She is a founding member of Mediators Beyond Borders and recent Chair of the Middle East Initiative, Mediators Beyond Borders.
