Daly was awarded a 2018 Artist Residency in Visual Art at Yaddo. She was invited by the UCLM Faculty of Fine Arts to give a Conference “Half-Life/Vida-Media: Obra Reciente Ann Burke Daly” at UCLM Cuenca, Spain in March 2019 where she also screened “Script: Franco is Still Dead“(14:15), which she created as an Artist in Residence in collaboration with Madrid, Spain diy scene musician and writer Álvaro Marcos, with a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in 2017. Daly was awarded a 2017 and 2016 Artist Residency at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA), and was a Visiting Artist at The American Academy in Rome in 2015. From 2013-2015 she was a visiting faculty member at CUNY, the City University of New York.

Daly’s diverse mise-en-scene installations of video, sound, photographs, objects, drawing, performative action, scripted narration, and writing work with disrupted narrative towards a psychological engagement with the viewer, drawing a relationship to the spacio-temporal concerns of Performance and Conceptual artists of the 60s and 70s. The discontinuities of perception and memory are focal in works which theatrically stage the “struggle to make sense” of narratives and biography. Her practice circulates around loss and what is outside of the frame (of representation, perception, memory, knowledge)—in what Daly calls “off-stage space.” She is interested in the radical potential, and poetics of loss, longing, and re-invention, and is concerned with how documents function, particularly photographs; their afterlife as objects. Daly was born in Michigan in the 1960s. She has lived for several years in Madrid Spain, New Haven Connecticut, and the Hudson Valley New York—and for over twenty years in Brooklyn New York.  Haz clic: Biografia y textos español.  Photo: Daly by Daly, June 2019 at home in Madrid Spain.
