The Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Mary L. Nohl Fund Fellowships for Individual Artists program annually awards unrestricted funds to emerging and established local artists to support the creation of new work, or the completion of work in progress. Now in its fourteenth cycle, the program makes a significant investment in the greater Milwaukee arts community, encouraging artists to live and make work here. The Fellowships also create—through the jurying process and culminating exhibition—an opportunity to promote local artistic production to a national audience.
This exhibition includes new work by the 2016 Fellows, who were chosen from a field of 151 applicants by a panel of three jurors: JoAnne Northrup, Curatorial Director and Curator of Contemporary Art, Nevada Museum of Art, Reno; Valerie Cassel Oliver, Senior Curator at Contemporary Arts Museum Houston; and Julie Rodrigues Widholm, Director and Chief Curator, DePaul Art Museum, Chicago.

Alchemy + Millennium Film Journal + San Francisco

Hello! Some updates to share as spring approaches, quicker than ever…

See a Dog, Hear a Dog will play as part of Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival. Thrilled to be included in this terrific program and festival. Excellent company I’m keeping in this program: Mediating the Machine 

AND really excited that an interview with Elliot Horwatt will be included in the upcoming spring issue of Millennium Film Journal. It’s such an honor to be included, and I truly enjoyed my conversation with Eli, and his thoughtful and intelligent questions gave me a lot to consider. The piece really focuses on the newest video (See a Dog, Hear a Dog). There may be a related screening in the spring, too, in NYC, stay tuned… and thanks everyone who was/is involved! Support this journal if you can, it’s an incredible resource to artists, writers, scholars, viewers, etc…

See a Dog, Hear a Dog will also be included in the San Francisco International Film Festival, very happy to be included in this great festival. Stay tuned for more details about the where/when.

Winter 2017 Updates

Hello and Happy New Year!

Here are some upcoming screenings happening right at the start of 2017:

My latest video See a Dog, Hear a Dog will be screening at the International Film Festival Rotterdam as part of the Bright Future Shorts. The programming look amazing and I’m thrilled to be there in person. I’ll also give a masterclass at the festival, details to come.

The same piece will screen as part of a film/video program within Transmediale in Berlin, celebrating its 30-year anniversary with an incredible theme of “ever elusive”. I’ll also be participating in a “middle session”, moderated by writer Elvia Wilk .
It is scheduled for Friday the 3rd , 11.30 am – 1 pm.  Here are a few sentences about the session…

As media increasingly melt into the environment, they become both more naturalized and more estranged, in the sense that we understand the way they work less and less. The “Elemental” Middle Session highlights the unnoticeable media we live and work among, focusing equally on their material (technical) properties and their cultural meanings. 

See a Dog, Hear a Dog will also screen as part of the Alchemy Film & Moving Image Festival in Scotland in March. Thrilled to be included in this incredible festival!

Last November I received a Nohl Fellowship in the Established Artist category and couldn’t be more honored and excited to be a fellow and work with the Nohl organization. Stay tuned for information regarding the exhibition at the Haggerty Museum of Art later this year.

Fall updates

I’m just returning from Projections at New York Film Festival, where my new video “See a Dog, Hear a Dog” had its world premiere. It was great to be included among such excellent work!

Later this October, I’ll be heading to upstate New York for a stop in Syracuse University, then on to Binghamton University for the Visiting Artist screening series, then Ithaca to screen a solo program at Cornell Cinema. Excited for this mini-tour.
