Kitty Huffman was born and raised in Romania to Hungarian parents. She moved to the United States in her early twenties and received a BA degree from the University of Wisconsin, Madison and an MFA degree from the School of Art Institute of Chicago. Huffman’s work involves video, performance as well as sculptural components to construct large-scale installations at the intersection of performance and the moving image. She has shown work recently at the Watermill Center (New York) interdisciplinary laboratory for the arts founded by director Robert Wilson; at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Madison, WI, at Grace Exhibition Space (Brooklyn, NY), and in the Defibrillator and Sullivan Galleries of Chicago (IL). Kitty Huffman was granted the Merit Scholarship for her graduate studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and she is also the recipient of the 2012 Anna Louise Raymond Fellowship (SAIC); the 2010 Lyman S.V. Judson and Ellen Mackechnie Award and the Wisconsin Union Directorate Art Committee Choice Award in Madison, WI. Currently Huffman resides in Chicago and is working on developing a series of extended self-portraits, which explore ideas about identity and the idea of home sited in the current global culture.
