Past Artist In Residence
The video installation artist and photographer, Brendan Lee, often looks at the associations that are made between notions of place, film and history. He explores the relationships between the filmic memory of significant cinematic locations and the interactions of individuals within their historical weighting. In the past several ears, Lee has focused on Australian film history and folklore and has zoomed in on his desire to determine how we identify and differentiate ourselves culturally from other people and regions. In 2006, Lee joined 18th Street after receiving a residency grant from the Australia Council for the Arts, and his work was exhibited with Patriot Acts: Future of Nations exhibit.
