Collection: Amanda Dawn Christie

Amanda Dawn Christie is an interdisciplinary new media artist who makes film, installation, performance, and transmission artworks. She completed her MFA at the SFU School for the Contemporary Arts in Vancouver, and is currently an Assistant Professor in Studio Art: Intermedia (Video, Performance, and Electronic Arts) at Concordia University in Montreal. Christie has lived on both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of Canada, as well as in Amsterdam. She studied English literature, contemporary dance, commercial photography, and digital imaging prior to her MFA. Concepts and themes in her work explore the relationship between the human body and analogue technology in a digital age. Christie's work has been presented around the world on five continents in various places including New York, San Francisco, Cannes, Seoul, Buenos Aires, Africa, Australia, and in the Arctic. Her films have screened at numerous major festivals such as the Rotterdam International Film Festival, the Oberhausen Short Film Festival, Exis Experimental Film Festival, the Images Festival, Hot Docs, and Cannes. Her films have also been presented by prestigious institutions such as the Cinémathèque Québecoise, the Canadian Film Institute, Jackman Hall at the Art Gallery of Ontario, MuMa Box at the Musée d’art Moderne in Le Havre, the Air Canada in-flight entertainment system, the Museum of Civilization in Québec, and the Millenium Film Workshop in New York. Her performance works include both interventionist site-specific works as well as highly technical theatrical works for black boxes and festivals. These have been presented at Nocturne in Halifax, Art in the Open in Charlottetown, VIVA! Art Action in Montreal, the San Francisco Cinémathèque, the Aberdeen Cultural Centre, and the TransX symposium on transmission arts in Toronto, among others. Her installation works often incorporate photographic prints, projections, audio, and/or sculptural objects and have been presented at Dazibao, Paved Arts, Latitude 53, the University of Victoria Art Gallery, the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, the Confederation Centre for the Arts Gallery, the Banff Park Museum, and Centre Clark, among others. Her transmission artworks have been broadcast by Wave Farm, Radio Web MACBA (Contemporary Art Museum of Barcelona), the BBC, the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation), NAISA (New Adventures in Sound Art), and many other public, community, commercial, non-profit, pirate, AM, FM, and international shortwave stations. Christie has worked with various curators including Corinna Ghaznavi, Mireille Bourgeois, and Pan Wendt among others. Her films are distributed by the CFMDC and V-Tape in Canada, the Dutchfilmbank in Amsterdam, and Lightcone in Paris. Her works can be found in various private and public art collections including the New Brunswick Art Bank and the Galerie d’art Louise et Reuben Cohen. Her interdisciplinary practice extends to audiences outside of contemporary art circles, and has been profiled by IEEE Spectrum (International Electronic and Electrical Engineering journal), and presented at the Circle of HOPE (Hackers on Planet Earth) in New York, and the NASWA Shortwave Festival in Pennsylvania, among others. She is currently consulting with US military physicists on a transmission artwork using HAARP, the world’s largest Ionospheric Research Instrument, to transmit audio and images to the boundaries of outer space. Academic writing and critical analysis of Christie’s work has been published in various books and catalogues including Process Cinema: Handmade Film in the Digital Age (McGill-Queens University Press), Colour in the Making: From Old Wisdom to New Brilliance (Black Dog Publishing). Her exhibitions and performances have been reviewed by Canadian Art, Music Works, and various other local and national publications. Her works have been taught in university courses in both Canada and the U.S. and she is frequently invited to present artist talks and keynote speeches at various institutions and events. Her research and creation work has been financially supported by numerous grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, various provincial arts councils, and the National Film Board of Canada. Her work has also received prizes such as the FICFA Prix de la Vague, the Linda Joy Media Art Award, and she was the Atlantic finalist for the National Media Arts Prize. Since 1997, Christie has been actively involved with artist run centres. She worked as the director of the Galerie Sans Nom & RE:FLUX Festival of Music, and as the production supervisor at Struts Gallery & Faucet Media Arts Centre. She has served on various committees and boards of directors of artist run centres and arts advocacy organizations including Galerie Sans Nom (Moncton), Atlantic Filmmakers Cooperative (Halifax), Cineworks Independent Filmmakers Society (Vancouver), Filmhuis Cavea (Amsterdam) and the Independent Media Arts Alliance (Canada). In addition to her art practice and involvement with artist run culture, Christie also frequently serves on peer assessment committees, curates, and publishes.
