Voices: Chris Sullivan
400 South Peoria Street
Filmmaker and performance artist Chris Sullivan explores a richly imagined universe of grotesque characters in a wholly idiosyncratic and disarmingly sincere style. His work has been screened at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Whitney Biennial, New York; Boston Art Museum, Massachusetts; Flaherty Film Seminar, New York; and at festivals across the country. His genuine performance Cavalcades in Learning at Randolph Street Gallery garnered great success earlier this year.
He has been the recipient of John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship, Rockefeller Media Arts Fellowship, Bush Foundation Fellowship, Illinois Arts Council, and National Endowment of the Arts Regional Fellowships. He currently teaches Animation, Film, Video, and New Media at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Sullivan earned a BFA from Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
