Morgan Bobrow-Williams is a black, non-binary, post-disciplinary artist creating work at the intersections of movement, performance art, sound, film, and installation. Morgan was born and raised in Augusta, Georgia and studied dance and graphic design at Marymount Manhattan College. They have performed extensively across the US and Europe, including works by Johannes Wieland, Shamel Pitts , Maxine Doyle, and have more recently honed in on their own work and practices.
Awarded artist residencies include Merriweather District 2021, Tanz Farm 2020 and 2021, and Triskelion 2021. Commissions for scores include Sebastian Arbarbanell’s piece HOME, 2021 and Béatrice Larrivée's She Looks Like She'd be an Animal in Bed, 2023. In 2021 they created, scored, and performed in two performance art installations THE RUNNING PROJECT: BLACK GLADIATOR and FREEDOM-PHONE-4000 and also released their debut self-titled project SUM1 in 2021 which is available on all streaming platforms. Morgan is currently working on their Sophomore music project to be released in 2023.
Growing up they were introduced to, and shaped by, a wide range of artistic expressions, through school, family, and life experience, and additionally witnessed and participated in community and political organizing that their parents were involved in. Aligned with the multiplicities that exist in their gender identity, cultural background (Black and Jewish), as well as their transcendent approach to post-disciplinary creating, Morgan in their being does not fit inside tradition or convention and instead exists as an other, as an outlier, constantly exploring and remaining curious.
