BIOGRAPHY: Lisa DiLillo is a visual artist based in New York who creates photographs, video installations, and single channel videos. Some of her recent video work focuses on the peculiar interactions that take place between our human constructs and the “natural” world. DiLillo's work has been exhibited internationally in such venues and festivals as the Walker Art Center, the Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp, Belgium, the Reina Sofia National Museum of Art, Madrid, the Rotterdam Film Festival, the Moscow International Festival of Contemporary Dance, and at Thierry Goldberg Projects, ClampArt, and Momenta Art Gallery in NY, among others. She has been awarded an Electronic Arts Grant, a Jerome Foundation Grant, and residencies at The Experimental Television Center. She has also curated programs for the Knitting Factory Video Lounge for several years, as well as worked on other curatorial projects.
