Feminist Form is happy to present film and video work
by Olympia-based artist Bridget Irish. A Northwest native,
Irish has been making short films and videos for 20 years.
For Feminist Form, Irish will be showing some rarely screened early work
on Super 8 and 16mm film, followed by more recent work on video.
Her work is primarily non-narrative and often abstract in nature,
presenting subjects through such approaches as single frame animation,
portraiture, performance, and documentary. Her artistic practice also includes
performance, photography, installation, visual art, music, and writing.
Bridget Irish has screened, performed, and lectured nationally and
internationally, including On the Boards, 911 Media Arts, Artist's
Television Access, Tollbooth Gallery, Robert Beck Memorial Cinema,
Sarah Lawrence, UCLA, The Art Institute of Chicago, Guyana’s SASOD,
Chéries-Chéris: le Festival de Films Gays Lesbiens Trans & +++ de
Paris, Tacoma Art Museum, and the Northwest Film & Video Festival.
Bridget has curated film and video programs for Ladyfest 2000 (Olympia),
Progression Project One Conference (Boise State University), Homoagogo,
CoCA Seattle, and the Olympia Film Festival's CINE-X Series.
She performed with Dr. Frockrocket's Vivifying (Re-Animatronic) Menagerie
and Medicine Show in 2001, and the Sex Workers Art Show National Tour
in 2006 and 2007. She has taught in the areas of new media studies
and video and film production at UC Berkeley, The Olympia Film Society,
and The Evergreen State College.
One of Bridget’s newest photo-mation videos will be screening at SIFF
(Seattle Int’l Film Festival) this May, and a narrative short she
co-wrote and co-stars in will be showing at Inside Out Toronto.
