BIO: Geoffrey Alan Rhodes is a Chicago filmmaker and media artist. His work seeks to open up new ground for imagistic media, challenging barriers between the real and the imaginary, documentary and narrative, the actual and the fictional, playing with the boundaries between photo, film, and electric media. He has been exhibited recently at the International Society for Electronic Arts, the European Media Arts Festival, Media Art Friesland, the Moscow International Film Festival, and the Chelsea Museum of Art in New York among others. He has received multiple grants from the Princess Grace Foundation, New York Council for the Humanities, New York Foundation for the Arts, the Fulbright Foundation, and others. Rhodes earned a Ph.D. from York University (2010) and an M.F.A. from the University at Buffalo (2005). www.garhodes.com
