Laura Harrison

Join us in the STUDIO on Monday February 19th at 5PM for a guest lecture from Laura Harrison as part of the Women in Animation Speaker Series!

LAURA HARRISON lives and works in Chicago. Her animations focus on marginalized, social outcasts with their own sub cultures. These fringe characters provide a focal point for her concerns with diaspora, trans humanism, gender and the loss of touch in an overwhelmingly visual world. Her films have shown at various festivals internationally including The New York Film Festival, Ottowa International Animation Festival, Animafest Zagreb, LA Film Festival, The Chicago Underground Film Festival, EYEWORKS, Japan Media Arts Festival, Boston International Film Festival, Florida Film Festival, GLAS, Melbourne International Animation Festival and many others.

Made possible by the generous support of Carnegie Mellon University Center for the Arts in Society, the College of Fine Arts Dean’s Office, Dietrich College Department of Modern Languages, the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, Sylvia & David Steiner Speaker Series, the Humanities Scholars Program, IDeAle, and Carnegie Mellon School of Art.
