Lee Webster makes work about American mourning and the perpetual pop culture nostalgia machine. Working with and against documentary and narrative filmmaking, Webster resituates filmic structures as installation, looped video, and live performance to ask the viewer to look between frames to examine the complex yet mutable stuff with which we weave the stories that become our personal and social mythologies.
Webster earned her BA at Sarah Lawrence College and is a Master of Fine Arts Candidate at Carnegie Mellon University. She is the recipient of an Art Matters Foundation grant and a fellowship at the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center. Her work has been exhibited and screened at The Contemporary in Austin, TX, Microscope Gallery in Brooklyn, New York, the Portland Oregon Women’s Film Festival, as well as other venues.
