Vanalyne Green works in video and film, though recent years have seen her experimenting with conceptual works that include sculptural objects. She is of that generation of American artists whose artistic careers developed contemporaneous to that of feminism in its sociological sense. Her interest in art education stems from the radical teaching methodologies of Judy Chicago’s first feminist art program and then at CalArts with Sheila Levrant de Bretteville. Green has screened her videos extensively, including The Whitney Biennial and Rotterdam International Film Festival, among other venues. A recipient of a Guggenheim Foundation fellowship, as well as grants from Creative Capital, the Jerome Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and a Rome Prize at the American Academy in Rome, her videotape “A Spy in the House that Ruth Built” was listed as one of the 1,000 best films ever made by film critic Jonathan Rosenbaum. Recently, she’s contributed to What Do Artists Know?, a forthcoming anthology edited by James Elkins.
