Monika Weiss is a transdisciplinary artist and professor at Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts, whose performative video installations, sound works, sculptures and drawings have been exhibited in over twenty solo exhibitions internationally.

She works in projected video, performance, sound composition, drawing, and sculpture, often combining these elements into large-scale public installations. She has lectured at various schools internationally, including The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Vermont College of Fine Arts, Concordia University, McGill University, Stony Brook University, and Spelman College. In 2009, Monika was awarded the New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in the interdisciplinary category.
