Lili White made Super 8 films while studying painting. When the computer transformed movie making at the end of the 90s, she began using that technology; and continues to make still and moving image work. (See: http://liliwhite.com)
A graduate of University of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Academy’s four-year painting program, she has curated shows of experimental media and fine art works.
After serving as a Steering Committee member and Public Relations Chairperson for The Armory Show:1990, a 4 day art show of 400 Philadelphia artists, that netted $20,000 and had an attendance of 20,000; she moved to NYC where she cataloged DCTV’s library.
In 2003 her lecture INVISIBLE ENERGY: ASIAN ART FORM INFLUENCES IN MY WORK was presented at the College Art Association’ conference.
In 2007 a fundraiser DVD for the NY Film-Makers Cooperative was successfully produced.
In 2012, she was elected as a BOARD Member for MILLENNIUM FILM WORKSHOP in NYC and served on the ARCHIVE Committee, which was sold to NYC’s Museum of Modern Art.
After seeing screenings by Victoria Kereszi’s EYE:AM, that featured works by women filmmakers, she realized that shows such as these left the viewer with a different sense of the world. It was one that opened possibilities, not just in form of the work, but one that opened and expanded an outlook on the world, engendering dialogue.
In 2010, she curated and produced the first ANOTHER EXPERIMENT BY WOMEN FILM FESTIVAL screened at MILLENNIUM FILM WORKSHOP.
Currently, screenings of shorts continue to be presented at Anthology Film Archives’ NEW FILMMAKERS’ WOMEN’S NIGHTS, sponsored by NEW FILMMAKERS NY. Some shows of featured Q& A with visiting filmmakers, and sometimes feature a guest curator, like Sasha Water Freyer.And the AXWFF.com web-site has the program notes from the show listed.
We believe that artists should be paid for their work, and now AXW has an online screening site, http://axwonline.com, where shows purchased by the general public can be seen 24/7 for 3 concurrent days.
This site also serves as an ARCHIVE of women’s work and screenings can be extended into greater community out reach via negotiation.
