Films of Joyce Wieland

California College of the Arts

Art writer Lucy Lippard has said: “Joyce Wieland is one of those wild cards that saves the contemporary art world from its straight and narrow conformity to an institutionalized ‘wildness.'” Her work spans a full range of media–including painting, drawing, print, assemblage, quilts, sculpture, experimental and feature film, and public art–and explores feminism, nationalism, ecology and psychological themes, to name a few. The provocative manner in which her films combine ironic humor with political consciousness and original aesthetic structures has brought her recognition in widely divergent circles.” (JCL) Films include: Solidarity, Water Sark, Dripping Water (with Michael Snow), Cat Food, Rat Life & Diet in North America and the West Coast premiere of Birds at Sunrise.
