Women in Animation Speaker Series presents: Laura Harrison
February 19 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Laura Harrison lives and works in Chicago. Her animations focus on marginalized, social outcasts with their own sub cultures. These fringe characters provide a focal point for her concerns with diaspora, trans humanism, gender and the loss of touch in an overwhelmingly visual world. Her films have shown at various festivals internationally including The New York Film Festival, Ottowa International Animation Festival, Animafest Zagreb, AL Film Festival, The Chicago Underground Film Festival, EYEWORKS, Japan Media Arts Festival, Boston International Film Festival, Florida Film Festival, GLAS, Melbourne International Animation Festival and many others.
Organized by School of Art Professors James Duesing and Johannes DeYoung, this event is made possible by the generous support of Carnegie Melon University Center for the Arts in Society, the College of Fine Arts Dean’s Office, Dietrich College Department of Modern Languages, the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, the Humanities Scholars Program, IDeATe, and Carnegie Mellon School of Art.
Events in this series are free and open to the public. Given room capacity at the Frank Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, RSVPs are encouraged to ensure a seat at this event. RSVP for Laura Harrison’s talk here.
