Born and raised in New York City, Joshua White is an artist and video maker. In 1967, he formed The Joshua Light Show, a performing ensemble creating live improvised psychedelic imagery behind all the great rock bands of the day. Eventually, The Joshua Light Show found a permanent home at Bill Graham’s Fillmore East. After perfoming at the Woodstock Festival Joshua left light shows behind to pursue his new interest, giant screen video projection for large arenas. Soon, broadcast television discovered the potential of rock. Joshua segued over to that medium and began a thirty year career as a TV director. His credits include Seinfeld, The Jerry Lewis Telethon, The Max Headroom Show, Club MTV, The New Mickey Mouse Club, and Inside The Actors Studio. Ten years ago, Joshua re-generated light show collaborations with Gary Panter.

His work has been seen at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, The Hirshhorn Museum, Whitney Museum of American Art, The New Museum, Centre Pompidou, Hayden Planetarium in NY, Barbican Centre in London, Basel Switzerland and Basel Miami and most recently, The Cleveland Museum of Art.
