Brent Green

Working in the Appalachian hills of rural Pennsylvania, Brent Green is a visual artist, filmmaker and storyteller. Green’s films have screened, often with live musical accompaniment, in film and art settings alike at venues such as MoMA, The J. Paul Getty Musuem, The Walker Art Center, The Hammer Museum, The Boston MFA, The Wexner Center for the Arts, The Indianapolis Museum of Art, The Rotterdam Film Festival, the Sundance Film Festival and even extending to rooftops, warehouses and galleries throughout the globe. Often, his sculptural work and large-scale installations are displayed alongside his animated films, most recently with solo exhibitions at the ASU Art Museum, SITE Santa Fe, Art Without Walls, Diverseworks Houston and the Berkeley Art Museum. Green has crafted his rickety folk punk style into everything from a feature film (Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then, 2010) to a hacked lcd and steel animation machine (To Many Men Strange Fates Are Given, 2012) to even his newest feature film endeavors in live action and photography collage (Anatomical Maps With Battle Plans, in progress). He is represented by Andrew Edlin Gallery in NYC.
