Artist in person!
Caitlin Ryan is a Chicago-based interdisciplinary artist and filmmaker; her work explores the nuances between comedy and humor, specifically using the vernacular of the uncanny to investigate systems of anthropology. She’s interested in small underground (and sometimes temporary) communities to observe perspectives that push the boundaries of what it means to have radical empathy. Ryan received her MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago and has most recently shown her work at Iceberg Projects, Flatland, Gallery 400, and Hyde Park Art Center. Her films have also appeared at the Onion City Film Festival, Comfort Station, and the Nightingale Cinema.
