Visual Art Faculty Lecture Series presents Jules Rosskam
Jules Rosskam is an award-winning filmmaker, educator and interdisciplinary artist interested in liminal spaces: the space between male and female, between documentary and fiction, between moving image and still. His interdisciplinary practice works to induce a perceptual shift in our understanding of how and what bodies mean in the context of documentary film, toward an apprehension of multiplicities. He is the director, producer, and editor of transparent (2005), against a trans narrative (2009), Thick Relations (2012), Something to Cry About (2018), and Paternal Rites (2018), and Dance, Dance, Evolution (2019).
Recent screenings include the Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Fine Art Boston, the British Film Institute, Arsenal Berlin, Hallwalls Contemporary Art Center, and the Queens Museum of Art. Recent residencies include Marble House Project, PLAYA, ACRE, Yaddo, and ISSUE Project Room. He has received support for his films from the LEF Foundation, Rubys Artist Project, the Center for Independent Documentary, the Illinois Arts Council, the Astraea Foundation, and the Frameline Completion Fund. Rosskam holds an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (Film, Video, New Media, 2008).
All lectures are free and open to the public and are held in the CADVC gallery space.
