Paige Phillips works as an interdisciplinary artist, teacher and arts administrator. She holds an MFA in Dance from The Ohio State University with an interdisciplinary specialization in Folklore, a BFA in Dance from Cornish College of the Arts, and diploma from Interlochen Arts Academy. Phillips is currently an Artist in Residence at Mascher Space Cooperative, where she also works as the Development and Community Engagement Coordinator. Before coming to the Performance Garage, she worked as the Office Manager at Group Motion Dance Company, and held teaching positions at institutions such as The Ohio State University, International School Bangkok, and at non-profits such as VSA (Columbus, OH) and Arts Corps (Seattle, WA).
Her artwork engages most frequently with dance, installation, and video, and her content is concerned with recontextualizing rituals from pop-culture and religion to better understand identity politics. Some venues where she has exhibited include: National Museum of Singapore, Bangkok Art and Culture Center, Park Gallery (Kathmandu, Nepal), Microscope Gallery (New York City), Mascher Space Cooperative (Philadelphia), Columbus College of Art and Design (Columbus), On the Boards (Seattle), and Pyramid Atlantic (Washington D.C.). Phillips' work has been supported through grants from The Embassy of the United States in Nepal and Singapore, Ohio Arts Council, Greater Columbus Arts Council and The Ohio State University. She has performed for choreographers and visual artists throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia such as Cyrus Khmabatta, Josiah McElheny, Owen David, and Cai Guo-Qiang.
