Vanessa is practically the patron saint of experimental cinema in Portland. She has been making work longer than most younger artists have been breathing and continues to surprise and delight with her vast catalog of short films, video installations, and whatever else interests her. Vanessa is on fire this year with a host of screenings and exhibitions coming up including one at the Centre Pompidou at the end of April. Go Vanessa! She keeps the “Future Shows” section of her site up-to-date so check back often to see if she has a show in your town.
