Chris Schiavo

Chris Schiavo is a New York City based multi-media artist working in film, photography, drawing, sound, installation and performance ar --and often all of the above in a crazy, rumpus of experimental collisions. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art NY, the Metropolitan Museum of Art NY, the Henry Buhl Foundation and shown in galleries, museums and film festivals internationally. She is currently working on an experimental Super 8, silent film titled RIVETGIRL: a Cinematic Fable in 12 Chapters. RIVETGIRL is a surreal coming-of age-story made with live action, animation, photography, drawing and an original sound score. It premiered its first chapters at the Museum of Modern Art, NY and has shown at various film festivals. Chris often seeks collaboration with artists working in all mediums, thriving off the spontaneous energy and the happy accidents that occur when creative minds come together. She is a founding member and Visual Director of the Collective Opera Company based in NYC, and works in experimental theater, film and music projects. Her work has been selected for numerous awards including from the New York Foundation of the Arts for an Architecture & Environmental Installation; the New York State Council of the Arts for Experimental Film; and the PUFFIN Foundation for Photography. She has been selected for artis residencies by Braziers International Artist Residency, MacDowell Artist Colony, Yaddo Corporation and the Marie Walsh Sharpe Foundation, among others.
