Screening from the film and video collection of Hannah Piper Burns

In her time as a co-founding member of Grand Detour, a Portland-based microcinema and experimental media center,  Hannah Piper Burns has come across a wealth of video treasures, from experimental animation to bold appropriation. At this screening, she will share some of these short works with students, to give them an idea of the video landscape as it exists in her time and place.

Hannah Piper Burns is an experimental documentary, video, and installation artist who lives and works in Portland, Oregon. She is an SMCM alumna from the class of 2006. She then completed her post-baccalaureate certificate and master of fine arts degree in the New Genres department of the San Francisco Art Institute, graduating in 2009. Now, Hannah Piper Burns works as a social media consultant and freelance writer for clients like Lynn Hershman Leeson, whose newest film !Women Art Revolution has screened at TIFF, SFIFF, Sundance, and the Berlinale, and the Portland Art Dealers Association, as well as emerging artists around the country. Burns is a founding member of the Portland-based microcinema and experimental media center Grand Detour. Her work toured with Grand Detour's European "Heavy Meta Tour" in the fall of 2010, screening in London, Berlin, and Glasgow. She is also the communications director of the Museum of Pocket Art. She curated MoPA's fall 2010 exhibition, All Business All the Time, which uses the form of a business card to explore the contact points between artists' studio practice and day jobs.

Hannah Piper Burns is the Artist House Artist-in-Residence from October 17- October 30, 2011.
