Christine Kozlov (1945, New York City – 2005, London) was an American conceptual artist.


She attended the School of Visual Arts in NYC until 1967.


Kozlov was a figure in the New York Conceptual art scene centering around the Lannis Gallery located at 315 E 12th St near 2nd Ave in New York's East Village. She participated in a number of exhibitions in the sixties and early 1970s, subsequently falling away from the art world.[1] Her work has seen a revival since her death in 2005 and been included in a number of exhibitions over the past decade.[citation needed]

Her first pieces responded to questions of sound, memory and information. "Information, No Theory" consisted of a reel-to-reel recorder with an infinite tape loop and a microphone recording ambient noise from the room. It would record and then erase the traces of what was just recorded. It was recently restaged.[2]

She and Joseph Kosuth started the Museum of Normal Art out of the Lannis Gallery. For a short time it featured many of the artists associated with Conceptualism. She was a member of the Art and Language Group from 1971 to 1976.
