Virtual Event – With: Lisa Crafts

February 27, 2021, 7:30 – 9:00pm


Lisa Crafts is an animator and moving image artist whose interdisciplinary work addresses issues of environmental uncertainty, sexuality, creativity and chaos. She is currently working on a series of short moving image pieces about the horror, beauty, humor and loss of the Anthropocene. Blending animation, video, photography, drawing, painting and sculpture, the work inhabits the blur between what is seen and what is imagined.

Crafts’ work has screened in Europe, Asia, and throughout North America. She is a 2012 Guggenheim Fellow, and has received grants and fellowships from the Jerome Foundation, New York State Council for the Arts, New York Foundation for the Arts, and MacDowell. She teaches in the Film Video department at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY.

Single Channel VT explores the moving image and time based media through a series of ongoing collaborative viewings and discussions.

Artist curated screenings are presented quarterly throughout the year highlighting the history, practitioners, and genres of the moving image and time based media.

We appreciate the importance of many perspectives and the potential for meanings to multiply, shift, and deepen through shared experiences. Each event will showcase the work of an artist who will also present the work of another artist they are inspired by, or in conversation with.  

Single Channel VT recognizes that it occupies the unceded lands of the Abnaki, Mahican, Pennacook and other indigenous peoples. We also recognize that many existing systems of power, including arts organizations, grant privilege and access unequally. We seek to engage with artists and their work without regard to, and with respect of, their race, class, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, gender identity & expression, geography, citizenship status, religion and mental or physical ability.

Single Channel VT is Kate Donnelly, Thatiana Oliveira and Sumru Tekin.
