On Thursday, February 29 from 5 to 7 p.m., artists-in-residence Diane Christiansen and Jessie Mott will give an evening presentation on their collaborative visual art practice.
Diane Christiansen is a visual artist, musician, and social worker. Her interdisciplinary creative practice uses painting, drawing, animation, and large-scale installations to explore her fascination with impermanence, birth, death, decay, and interconnectedness. Her studio practice has evolved toward an increasingly collaborative and collective modality, and her projects have been exhibited across the United States and in Edinburgh, Scotland, and Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Jessie Mott is a visual artist whose practice focuses on themes of identity and power by exposing unstable perceptions of the queer body. Using an array of media such as painting, drawing, and animation, she gives life to creatures that negotiate permeable boundaries. Mott’s work has been exhibited widely, including in the International Film Festival Rotterdam and the Whitney Biennial.
