Working in the Appalachian hills of rural Pennsylvania, Brent Green is a self-taught visual artist and filmmaker. Green’s films have screened, often with live musical accompaniment, in film and art settings alike at venues such as MoMA, The J. Paul Getty Museum, The Walker Art Center, The Hammer Museum, The Kitchen, The Boston MFA, The Wexner Center for the Arts, The Indianapolis Museum of Art, The Rotterdam Film Festival, the Sundance Film Festival and even extending to rooftops, warehouses and galleries throughout the globe. Often, his sculptural work and large-scale installation are displayed alongside his animated films, most recently with solo exhibitions at the ASU Art Museum, Site Santa Fe, 21c/Art Without Walls, Diverseworks Houston and the Berkeley Art Museum.  His artwork is represented by the Andrew Edlin Gallery, NYC.  Green’s work has been supported by Creative Capital, the Sundance Institute, SFFS and the MAPfund.  His art is in some fine permanent collections including the Progressive Collection, the Hammer Museum and MoMA.
