MARIAH GARNETT: A RETROSPECTIVE

Friday, May 12 at 8 PM                                                 

Mariah Garnett mixes documentary, narrative and experimental filmmaking practices to make work that accesses existing people and communities beyond her immediate experience. Using source material that ranges from found text to iconic gay porn stars, Garnett often inserts herself into the films, creating cinematic allegories that codify and locate identity.

She holds an MFA from Calarts in Film/Video and a BA from Brown University in American Civilization. She has received awards from the Rema Hort Mann Foundation (2015), Sarah Jacobson Film Grant (2015), California Community Fund (2014) and Artadia Los Angeles (2016). She has had solo exhibitions at the Metropolitan Arts Center (Belfast, UK), ltd los angeles (Los Angeles), and Louis B James (New York), and her work has shown at SF MoMA, REDCAT, White Columns, Ann Arbor Film Festival and in the 2014 Made in LA Hammer Biennial. Her work has been written about in Bomb Magazine, Artforum online and in print, The LA Times, Hyperallergic, East of Borneo, Girls Like Us, and Art News. She lives and works in Los Angeles.
