Lynn Marie Kirby is an artist and filmmaker based in San Francisco who works in a variety of time-based forms and engages with questions of place and our relationship to sites. Her projects map emotional topographies through the use of improvisation, translation, and exchange. Her most recent work uses scent, taste, and touch, exploring perceptions beyond the visual and aural, engaging the audience in the history of particular sites. Kirby has exhibited widely — from the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Centre Pompidou to non-museum sites like San Francisco’s Alhambra Theatre/Crunch Gym and the Galata Bridge (Istanbul, Turkey) — and her films have been screened at film festivals around the world. Kirby is a professor of fine arts and film at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco.
