Jurors: Dani and Sheilah ReStack

Dani and Sheilah ReStack have embarked on an artistic relationship that is formally and emotionally adjacent to their domestic lives, a quotidian zone they share with their young daughter Rose. Both artists have established careers on their own. Neither Dani’ video work or Wilson’s multimedia performance and installation work could exactly prepare us for the force of the women’s collaborative efforts. – Michael Sicinski, Cinema Scope, 2017

Dani’s work is made with an emotional logic, questioning cultural, personal and animal realities. She got her MFA at UIC in 2003 in Studio Art and an MFA in Film/Video at Bard College in 2010. She has screened at Union Docs, Oberhausen, Rotterdam, MoMA PS1, Anthology Film Archives and Projections.

Sheilah uses photography, video, and text as performative and documentary tools to analyze the traces between history, story and the land. Sheilah got her MFA from Goldsmith College in London in 2005. She has had exhibitions at Ortega y Gasset Projects, The Knockdown Center, Queen Elizabeth Park, New Zealand and the
Albuquerque Museum.

Their recent collaborations have shown at Camden Art Center, MoMA, TCU Contemporary, the 2017 Whitney Biennial, Iceberg Projects Chicago, TorontoInternational Film Festival, Images Film Festival, Toronto, Lyric Theater, Carrizozo, NM, Leslie Lohman Project Space, Gaa Wellfleet and The Columbus Museum of Art, Ohio.
