I am a visual and video installation artist and my work engages the intersections
of moving images, technology, preservation/access--particularly within museum and
gallery settings--and the importance of participation by film and video makers (and
audiences) of color in the narrative of media production and history—all, hopefully,
deployed with a sense of humor!
Ina Diane Archer's multimedia works and films have been shown in festivals and galleries nationally including Black X: African Diaspora Experimental Film Series, NYC; Cinema Remixed and Reloaded: Black Women Artists and the Moving Image Since 1970 at Spelman College Museum of Fine Art, GA., and The Contemporary Art Museum, Houston and she was featured in Cinema Project's EXPANDED FRAMES: a celebration and examination of critical cinema in Portland, Oregon. Her awards include residences at Headlands Center for the Arts, Vermont Studio Center, Blue Mountain Center and Civitella Ranieri in Umbria, Italy. Ina was a Studio Artist in the Whitney Independent Study Program; a NYFA multidisciplinary Fellow, a 2005 Creative Capital grantee in film and video, and a 2010 nominee for the Anonymous Was A Woman award. She is a former co-chair of New York Women in Film and Television’s Women’s Film Preservation Fund.
