Naomi Crocker is a Minneapolis-based artist, whose work explores the boundaries between seemingly-disparate disciplines. She is drawn to acts of facilitation, but also utilizes installation, performance, sculpture, sound, and text-based practices. Naomi’s projects often consider humanity’s relationship with language (oral, written & gestural) and she is frequently inspired by linguistic histories, processes, and structures. Naomi holds dual B.A.’s in Linguistics and Scandinavian Studies, an M.A. in Second Languages & Cultures Education, and works as both an independent researcher and administrator primarily within museums and cultural organizations. She currently serves as Manager of Director’s Office & Strategic Initiatives at the Walker Art Center and enjoys reflecting on how arts & culture administration can be framed and lived as a creative endeavor.
