Deborah Stratman: April 9th
Visiting Artist Lecture Series
Deborah Stratman is a multi-disciplinary filmmaker working out of Chicago, Illinois. Her films challenge the tug-of-war between the physical environment and the human urge to dominate. A self-proclaimed reactive artist, Stratman accomplishes this via sculpture, photography, drawing, and audio.
Stratman’s work can be found at the Whitney Biennial, MoMA NY, the Pompidou, Hammer Museum, Witte de With, Walker Art Center, and Yerba Buena Center, to name a few. In a review in Cinema Scope, Samuel La France had this to say about Stratman’s installation: “Stratman’s films and videos are the work of a dissenting patriot who fights fire with fire, employing technologies old and new to reveal the misplacement of our fears and to seek out those interests that attempt to exploit them.”
