Jeanne C. Finley in person!

This evening’s program presents a selection of videotapes and installation works by San Francisco-based artist Jeanne C. Finley. Playing at the boundaries of documentary and experimental forms, Finley regularly examines the idiosyncratic foibles and traumas of the human condition with irony, humor and compassion. Her work has been exhibited internationally at the Guggenheim Museum, SF and NY Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of Art, Finland’s Otso Gallery and the George Pompidou Center. She has been the recipient of several grants including a Creative Capital Foundation Grant, Guggenheim Fellowship, Cal Arts/Alpert Award, and a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship.
