Miwa Matreyek is an animator, director, designer, and performer based in Los Angeles. Coming from a background in animation by way of collage, Matreyek creates live, staged performances where she interacts with her animations as a shadow silhouette, at the cross section of cinematic and theatrical, fantastical and tangible, illusionistic and physical. Her work exists in a dreamlike visual space that makes invisible worlds visible, often weaving surreal and poetic narratives of conflict between man and nature.

Performances of her work have been held at the TED Conference, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, Sundance New Frontier, The Lincoln Center, The Exploratorium in San Francisco, REDCAT in Los Angeles, and the Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis, to name a few. She is the recipient of a Creative Capital Award. She received her MFA for Experimental Animation and Integrated Media from CalArts in 2007.

Her presentation at Boston University will include a live performance followed by an artist talk and Q-and-A.

Part of the Contemporary Perspectives Lectures Series.
