Jesse Bonnell is an American artist whose work combines installation, video, photography, drawing and performance. He is a co-founder and director of Poor Dog Group,[1] a Los Angeles-based collective dedicated to contemporary performance.[2] His work germinates within visual art vocabularies, cinema, subverted theaterical idioms, non-hierarchal collaboration and lab-like experimentation.

Nationally, Bonnell's work has been shown at REDCAT, Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara, RADAR L.A., South Coast Repertory, Bootleg Theater, The Getty Villa, EMPAC and other site-specific locations.[3] His project Group Therapy[4] will debut at Center for the Art of Performance, UCLA in June 2018.
