Stacey Steers is known internationally for her process-driven, labor-intensive films composed of thousands of handmade works on paper. Her work employs images appropriated from early cinematic sources, from which she constructs original, lyrical narratives.
Steers’ animated short films have screened throughout the U.S. and abroad, and have received numerous awards. Her work has been featured at Sundance Film Festival, Telluride Film Festival, Locarno International Film Festival, IFFR, Rotterdam, New Directors New Films (New York), MoMA, The Lincoln Center in NYC and the National Gallery of Art (Washington, D.C.) among numerous other venues.
Since 2011, Steers has expanded her work to include collaborative installations that join invented, three-dimensional production elements with film loops, creating a new context for experiencing her films. She has had recent solo exhibitions at the Centre de Cultura Contemporània in Barcelona, The George Eastman Museum in Rochester, NY, MCA Denver, BMoCA in Boulder, CO and the Cinémathèque québécoise in Montreal.
Steers is a recipient of major grants from the Guggenheim Foundation, Creative Capital and the American Film Institute. She is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
