About the artist:
Jeanne Liotta was born and raised in NYC where she makes films and other ephemera – including photographs, works on paper and live projection performances. Her latest body of work takes place in a constellation of mediums investigating the cosmic landscape, at a curious intersection of art, science, and natural philosophy. Her 16mm film OBSERVANDO EL CIELO received the Tiger Award for Short Film at the 2008 Rotterdam Film Festival and her work has been represented in the 2006 Whitney Biennial, The New York Film Festival ; KunstFilm Biennale, Cologne; The Wexner Center for the Arts, The Museum of Modern Art; and The Sundance Channel among others. She also maintains ongoing scholarly research into The Joseph Cornell Film Collection at Anthology Film Archives. She has taught at The New School for Social Research, Pratt Institute, The San Francisco Art Institute, The Museum School, Boston, and SUNY Binghamton, and is core faculty at the Milton Avery Graduate School for the Arts at Bard College NY.
