Naomi Cohn participated in the invention of Contact Improvisation at Oberlin College and joined Twyla Tharp’s seminal dance company in 1971. She subsequently became an abstract painter based in Denver with representation at Plus Gallery. Returning to New York in 2008, Cohn introduced ceramics into her practice.
Recent 2019 exhibitions include Show #55 at Field Projects Gallery, New York and the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts Annual Exhibition The Form Will Find Its Way: Contemporary Ceramic Sculptural Abstraction at Katherine E. Nash Gallery, Minneapolis. She has been awarded residencies at Vermont Studio Center, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and Anderson Ranch Arts Center.
As a curator, Cohn organized Take Five (2010) for Plus Gallery, Denver and Ulterior Motif (2015) for The Painting Center, New York.
Born in New York City, Cohn lives and works in Bedford, NY. Her work is currently on view at BMoCA in The Stubborn Influence of Painting.
