Irene Caesar, Ph.D. is an artist-provocateur who creates absurd performances documented by photography to put to the test major concepts of human civilization. Her artwork is in four American Museums: Bayly Museum of the Virginia University, the Duke University Museum of Art, Zimmerli Museum of the Rutgers University, and MORA (Museum of Russian Art in New Jersey).
Irene Caesar was born in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1963 to a professor of psychology and to a history teacher. She grew up in an elite circle of Russian intellectuals. She received her education as an artist in the Peterhof Art School, class of Mark Tumin, who transferred to her the legacy of Russian constructivism of the 1920s, surviving only via the oral tradition in word of mouth from a teacher to pupil under the strict veto of communists. The message was to look for the meaningfulness of abstraction or for the constructivist foundations of the meaning. In this tradition, art was necessarily conceptual, and philosophy and art were inseparable. Irene Caesar received her BA in philosophy from St. Petersburg University, Russia in 1985. Her visionary art and mystical teaching became widely known in Russia at the end of the 1980s via multiple exhibitions in the major Russian Museums, radio and TV interviews, newspaper articles in the leading Russian newspapers, two documentary films for the St. Petersburg and all-Russia TV, and her book 'Art of Spirits' published and disbributed by Ivan Fyodorov, the major Russian publishing house at the time.
Irene Caesar participated in the dissident movement against the communist regime, and was invited to make a speech at the founding conference of the Free Democratic Party of Russia in the days of the 1991 Putsch, and, finally, after 10 years as an artist in Russia, she emigrated to the US in 1994 with a visa O of extraordinary ability on the invitation of Chuck Levitan Gallery in SoHo, NYC.
In the US, Irene Caesar transitioned from the traditional media to the digital media, and refined her conceptualist vision of art by getting a Ph.D. in philosophy in 2009 from the CUNY Graduate Center in New York. Her book 'Why we should not be unhappy about happiness via Aristotle' was published in 2010 by the Lambert Academic Publishing in Germany. She is also the author of the book of poetry 'Confined Verse' (St. Petersburg University Press, 2004). Irene Caesar lives in New York.
