Jack Waters

b.1954

JACK WATERS is a visual artist, film maker, writer, media artist, choreographer and performer.

His visual art was represented in 2014 in the Visual AIDS exhibition "Ephemera As Evidence" at La Mama Galleria, and in 2013 at "NOT OVER: 25 Years of Visual AIDS" also at La Galleria, and in "Not only this, but 'New language beckons us'" at Fales Library and Special Collections, NYU. He exhibited in the 2008 three person show "Triple Threat" at Frise, the gallery in Hamburg Germany.

His film "Berlin New York" was shown on the November 2002 Sundance Channel's "Underground Shorts: Politics" program. He and life partner/collaborator Peter Cramer were subjects of the PBS series "In The Life" 2002 season premier for their video installation "We Remember" at NYC's Donnel Library windows.

His video short "The Male Gayze" was shown at the Whitney Museum Of American Art’s February 1995 exhibition "The Black Male". Water's film works are the subject of preservation by Visual AIDS’ Estate Project for Artists With AIDS. Waters is the creator of the interactive digital artwork "Superschmoozio© The Game Of the International Art Market", a project fostered by Franklin Furnace's Future of The Present residency at the New School for Social Research.

As a journalist he has published articles on politics, cultural affairs, and reviews in visual arts, film, and media. He was a founding contributing writer for Color Life, the news journal for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered and two-spirited people of Color, and for LGNY, New York City’s LGBT news bi-weekly.

Cramer and Waters were a catalytic force behind POOL, a dance/performance collective in the early 80's. POOL explored contact and other forms of improvisation, emphasizing combined theatrical forms, ritual, activism and group dynamic, creating performance work, choreography, and ephemeral events in NYC, throughout the U.S., and internationally.

Collections housing Water's works include NYC Library Of Performing Arts, The Film Makers' Cooperative, NYC Public Library AIDS Activist Video Collection, and the archives of Allied Productions, Inc., the non profit arts umbrella organization that he and Cramer co-founded and manage. Waters and Cramer are subjects of an oral history on the website and catalogue of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C..

Waters is a 1979 graduate of the Dance Division of the Juilliard School.

My earliest training is influenced by the works of the German expressionist multi media movement artist Mary Wigman and her partner, the kinesthesiologist Rudolph Von Laban. Their collaboration melded aesthetics, sociology, and physics into a broad-reaching practice in a defining point of modernism. Collaborative working, collective process and cross media has been a lifetime methodology in my art-making and social practice.       From my experience in low/no budget film production I have developed a resourcefulness instilled by limited access to the high-end. This ability to not only adapt, but to excel in making the best use of available resources has become ingrained as an organic aesthetic  approach that recognizes form and content as mutually dependent. Much of my process involves drawing, painting, and sculpture as I frequently exhibit in forums and venues dedicated to the visual arts. Similarly, I use writing and musical forms as a basis for my creative composition. I merge visual art and live art/performance with moving image and installation in frequent collaboration with my life partner Peter Cramer. Our work strives to refute the arbitrary constrictions imposed by the strict boundaries of genre with the understanding that not conforming to recognized standards warrants control -- and self definition -- of our own means of production.  I have worked professionally in media since 1980 as an independent producer of my own short experimental works. A primary exhibition venue for me since 1986 has been with the annual New York Lesbian and Gay Experimental Film Festival, now known as MIX NYC. I have self exhibited my own works locally, nationally, and internationally, and have been an arts administrator as co- director of Abc No Rio, and co- founder/co-director of Allied Productions, Inc. I was also an exhibitor of film and video as the director of Naked Eye Cinema, an offshoot of Abc No Rio's film programming. Our current venue for presenting work of other experienced and up and coming artists is Le Petit Versailles the Greenthumb community garden that Cramer and I founded and collectively manage in our neighborhood of New York's Lower East Side. As with our work at Abc No Rio LPV gives us the opportunity wo experience and collaborate with a broad range of artists of all ages and persuasions. Similarly it supports our lifelong interest in and influence by community and collective process
