Lee Anne Schmitt is an artist and filmmaker based in Los Angeles interested in political thought, personal experience and the land. Much of her work involves 16mm filmmaking placed in landscape, objects and the traces of political systems left upon them.
Her projects have addressed American exceptionalism, the logic of utility and labor, gestures of kindness and refusal, racial violence, cowboyism, trauma and narrative and the efficacy of solitude.
She has exhibited widely at venues that include MoMA NY, the Getty Museum, RedCat Theater, Northwest Film Society, Centre Pompidou and festivals such as Viennale, CPH/DOX, Oberhausen, Rotterdam, BAFICI and FID Marseilles. Schmitt is a recent recipient of both a Graham Foundation Grant and a Creative Capital Award.
