DESCRIPTION

 “Magical…the sheer breadth of the imagery…is unlike anything you've seen before.” — Los Angeles Times   

A newcomer to Boston, LA-based multimedia artist Miwa Matreyek combines animation, video installation, and performance for one-of-a-kind experiences that have appeared at international art centers and festivals including Sundance Film Festival. These two pieces combine stunningly lovely imagery with inventive movement and shadow play for works that are, as she says, “at once semi-scientific (like flipping through a children’s encyclopedia), emotional, and dream-like, rich in surrealism, metaphor, and fantasy.”

Appropriate for all ages.

Funded in part by the Expeditions program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional support from the six New England state arts agencies.
