LILLI CARRÉ | images | artist resume | WX shows: 2014 | 2012

b. 1983, Los Angeles, CA
Lives and works in Chicago

Lilli Carré is an interdisciplinary artist currently living in Chicago. Her creative practice employs a wide range of media including animation, drawing, comics, printmaking, and ceramic sculpture. Carré's work, which defies simple classification by medium, encompasses explorations of movement, language, abstraction and exaggeration of the body, and humor in mortality.

Her animated films have been shown in festivals throughout the US and abroad, including the Sundance Film Festival, the Edinburgh International Film Festival, Animator Festival Poznan´ Poland, the Ann Arbor Film Festival, International Film Festival Rotterdam, and the Punto y Raya Film Festival. She co-founded the Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation with Alexander Stewart in 2010, which is held annually in Chicago with additional curated programs presented internationally throughout the year. Her most recent collection of comics, Heads or Tails, saw its second printing from Fantagraphics Books in January 2015. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, The New Yorker, Best American Comics and Best American Nonrequired Reading. Her BMO Harris Chicago Works solo show at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago was reviewed in the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Reader and her solo show at Western Exhibitions in Chicago in September was reviewed on Hyperallergic. She has been included in shows at the Columbus Museum of Art in Ohio, the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Wisconsin, the Museum of Cartoon Art in San Francisco, and the DePaul University Art Museum in Chicago. She received a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and is currently pursuing an MFA in Art Theory and Practice at Northwestern University.
