A media artist whose research is motivated by a deep curiosity about human behavior and relationships, Jesse McLean’s work is concerned with both the power and the failure of the mediated experience to bring people together. She has presented her work at museums, galleries, and film festivals worldwide, including the International Film Festival Rotterdam, the Venice Film Festival, CPH:DOX (Copenhagen), the Images Festival (Toronto), among many others. Experimental Response Cinema, in collaboration with the Department of Art & Art History at Texas State University, is excited to present this screening with the artist in person!

“McLean works primarily with found footage, a natural outgrowth of her concern with irony and authenticity; to re-contextualize footage is to ask fundamental questions about its function within culture and automatically to cast aspersions on its original reception. McLean’s films expertly and violently toggle between outrageous, air-quoted self-doubt and outpourings of urgent, unnerving emotion.” – Tom McCormick, Cinema Scope Magzine

Presented in collaboration with the Art History Department at Texas State University in San Marcos. Special thanks to Prof. Jennifer Stob in co-organizing this screening.
