The Hunter Moving Image Alliance is glad and giddy to invite you to an evening in the company of artist, musician and writer Lex Brown.

"Lex Brown is an artist, musician, and writer. Her work is informed by the omnipresence of data, information, media, and how its images condition our bodies and language. Brown builds new characters, expansive fictional worlds, and unexpected linguistic relationships in order to dismantle internalized racism and sexism within the mind of herself and audience. Fluctuating between humor and seriousness, the work opens up a space for spirited examination, often drawing on family history and current, and historical events. Her work plays with the scale of personal and emotional experience in relation to large scale systems of social and economic organization.

Brown has performed and exhibited work at the New Museum, the High Line, the International Center of Photography, Recess, and The Kitchen in New York; REDCAT Theater and The Hammer Museum in Los Angeles; The Baltimore Museum of Art in Baltimore; and at the Munch Museum in Oslo, Norway. Brown holds degrees from Yale University (MFA) and Princeton University (AB). Consciousness, a survey of Brown's work spanning the past 8 years, is in the collections of the Whitney, MoMA, and Met museums. It is available in a limited, hand-bound edition from GenderFail Press. Her first paperback work in fiction, My Wet Hot Drone Summer, a sci-fi erotic novella that takes on surveillance and social justice, is available online.

Brown teaches at Harvard University as a College Fellow in Theater Dance & Media and Art, Film & Visual Studies; and at Princeton University as a Lecturer in Visual Arts."
