Please note: the Ralph Arnold Fine Arts Annex will be closed to the public from December 18-January 7 for winter break.
Lilli Carré will project a series of short animated films she describes as “moving drawings” on the windows facing Sheridan Road. Heads explode, flowers grow, arrows are shot into ears, facial features rearrange themselves, cat-girls dance, and people blow chewing gum bubbles at each other.
Lilli is a Chicago-based artist who makes comics, illustrations, and animations. Her films have been shown at festivals around the world, including the Sundance Film Festival. Last year she co-founded the Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation and is working on plans for the 2011 fest. She is the author of the books Tales of Woodman Pete, The Lagoon, and Nine Ways to Disappear, and has recently contributed stories to Mome, The Believer Magazine, Best American Comics 2010, and Best American Nonrequired Reading 2010.
