Betsy Hunt: Drawing Exercises

March 21 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Event Navigation

Opening at 6pm – 9pm

OneHouse ArtExperience presents Drawing Exercises features three short videos – done during a one week, May 2018, residency at the Motion and Media Across Disciplines Lab (MMAD Lab) at the University of Minnesota Duluth, by Duluth-based artist, Betsy Hunt.

Betsy’s current research is in video art, experimental animation, and performance art. She is specifically interested in exploring physicality in film through cut out animation, sound and image juxtaposition, and performative filmmaking.

Watching her videos is almost like watching her perform live using herself not only as a character; but also a performer. These videos inspired by things like slapstick comedy, are tools for her to explore physicality and weight in film. The choice of symbolic shapes (images), simple gestures and eccentric sound effects, tell both personal and universal stories, embrace art and life, and question the meaning of Being at large.

Betsy Hunt is a video and animation artist. She received her BFA from the University of Northern Iowa in 2005 and her MFA from the California Institute of the Arts in 2008. Betsy has exhibited her video work throughout the United States including Elephant Art Space (Los Angeles, CA), Soo Visual Art Center (Minneapolis, MN) and The Duluth Art Institute (Duluth, MN). She currently lives and teaches Digital Art at the University of Minnesota Duluth in Duluth, MN.

This exhibition is organized by OneHouse ArtExperience in conjunction with their exhibition of student work.
