Frontier Fellowship: Caitlin Denny
September 15 - October 1
Caitlin Denny’s studies lay within the psychological and occult powers of new media, notions of evolving and interactive archives and social justice amidst regulated internet and technology platforms. Denny’s current work concentrates on technology as performance, Western Utopian complications, and the preservation of such a mysterious medium as “New Media.”
She has exhibited internationally and has curated exhibitions in California, France, New York and online. She is curator of the online based project JstChillin, a landmark netart project that garnered serious and critical attention towards internet based art which is now in the archives of Rhizome/The New Museum in New York City.
Her own work in video and image making has been featured at Sonoma Valley Museum of Art (Sonoma, CA), Little Paper Planes Gallery (San Francisco), Reference Gallery (Richmond, VA), Roots and Culture (Chicago, IL), School 33 Art Center (Baltimore, MD), and The Lab (San Francisco, CA). She’s spoken at the Creator’s Project, UPLOAD.GIF, and San Francisco Art Institute. She is recently graduated from UCLA’s Master of Library and Information Science program with a focus on media archives.
“I’m looking forward to connecting the community of Green River to the layered and enlightening histories that all small American towns have. My work as an archivist isn’t done until I activate the materials with the users who can value them the most.”
