Jody Wood’s work is interdisciplinary and time-based, engaging with video, photography, performance, and social practice to collaborate with human service sectors in anti- poverty support and public health.

Her community-based work has been supported by prestigious institutions including A Blade of Grass, Esopus Foundation, Rema Hort Mann Foundation, an ArtPlace America Initiative at McColl Center for Art + Innovation, and through residencies at Headlands Center for the Arts, Yaddo, and Skowhegan School for Painting and Sculpture. Her work has been exhibited internationally at Manchester School of Art, UK; Parrish Museum of Art in Water Mill, NY; and FIVAC in Camaguey, Cuba and has been featured in leading publications such as The Atlantic, Hyperallergic, The Art Newspaper, and MSNBC, among others.

During her residency at AiR 351, she will work on a new web-based project that explores the industrialization of health care.
