7:30pm, October 23, 2020 – Virtual Event
with: Kristen Mills
Kristen Mills is a Video Artist currently living in Vermont, not far from the Gihon River.
Kristen Mills holds an MFA from Tyler School of Art and an MSAE from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. She is a former adjunct Assistant Professor, teaching at both Tyler and MassArt while co-running/owning Cloud Coffee, an artist-run mobile caffeinated endeavor. In 2016, Mills maintained an Artist-in-Residence position at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and in 2017, she gained her first museum show with her collaborative project, Sister Spaceship, at the Delaware Contemporary Museum. In 2018, just after she successfully thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail (northbound), Mills began a year-long residency/staff-artist position at Vermont Studio Center. She is now employed as their Visual Arts Program Manager.
Mills’ work engages a variety of strategies: video art, installations, talk shows, comedic performances, collaborative engagements, and teaching – in an ongoing investigation of how meaning is constructed in our contemporary culture. Her work has been exhibited in many, many excellent places. Her most recent is a solo exhibition at Ortega y Gasset Projects, in Brooklyn, NY where she takes her video work into a physical dimension. Literally. This exhibition is on view until October 11, 2020.
