Logan Lecture Featuring Filmmaker and Artist Stacey Steers
Stacey Steers is internationally known for her process-driven, labor-intensive films composed of thousands of handmade works on paper. Her work employs images appropriated from early cinematic sources, from which she constructs original, lyrical narratives with a gothic sensibility; the mysteries of night, shadow, and a lurking unknown are integral to their tenor. Her animated short films have screened throughout the U.S. and abroad, and have received numerous awards.
Since 2010, Steers has expanded her work to include collaborative installations that join invented, three-dimensional production elements with film loops, creating a new context for experiencing her films. For this Logan Lecture series, Steers will discuss her artistic practice and will talk about her work Night Hunter, 2011, which is featured in the current exhibition Disruption: Works from the Vicki and Kent Logan Collection, and plays an integral role in one of the sections of the show that addresses surveillance, access, and control.
