Christie Blizard was born in rural Indiana and lives and works in Texas. Their work moves between music, poetry, and visual art in an attempt to understand what is beyond the death dimension. Since a communication with the ghost of Daniel Johnston in 2021, they have been working on their first full length album to be released in early 2024 and hope to tour with the work very soon.
They were a participant of Skowhegan in 2018 and attended MacDowell and Artpace. Shows include those at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, School of Visual Arts, Black Mountain College, Good Morning America, the Roswell UFO Convention, and the Today show. They have been featured in Hyperallergic, ArtNews, Art in America, and NY Arts Magazine. Recent and upcoming performances include those at Cloaca Projects in San Francisco, Interference Fest in Austin, TX, Ballroom Marfa, Skowhegan headquarters in NYC, and an opera in Fort Worth, TX at the Cowtown Coliseum. They were recently selected by Christopher Lew for the Horizon Art Foundation in Los Angeles and will soon be in Berlin for several months in the upcoming year.
