Jeanne C. Finley

Jeanne C. Finley creates hybrid documentaries and expanded cinema projects to reflect on the contested past, the turbulent present, and the unpredictable future. Finley weaves a discursive fabric between the imaginary and the document, allowing them to inform and challenge one another. The resulting films, installations, and social engagement projects employ collaborative processes with artists, scientists, audience, and subjects. Recent films include Journeys Beyond the Cosmodrome, 2019, Book Report, 2017 and dozens of others Finley has created projects through residencies at the Wexner Center Media Arts Program, Headlands Center for the Arts, the Camargo Foundation in France, the Arts Link Fellowship in Bosnia and Kazakhstan, the Fulbright Fellowship in Belgrade and the Lila Wallace Readers Digest Foundation in Istanbul, among others. Her work has been exhibited internationally, including the Guggenheim Museum, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and New York Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum, and the George Pompidou Center. She has received many grants, including a Rockefeller Media Arts Fellowship, Guggenheim Fellowship, Creative Capital Foundation, Cal Arts / Alpert Award, National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships, and the Phelan Award. Her gallery work is represented by the Patricia Sweetow Gallery and her films are distributed by Video Data Bank, Women Make Movies, and Electronic Arts Intermix. Finley is a member of the Threshold Choir and frequently incorporates the choir and original songs into her work. She has collaborated with artist and educator John Muse on numerous films and installations since 1989.
