We congratulate and welcome Tara Tavi as Slamdance's key artist for our 2023 Film Festival.
Tara is an artist from Pomona, California whose multimedia work embraces the surreal. In her work for Slamdance Tara has created a collage that takes on a cinematic quality. By juxtaposing competing images from both sides of vintage magazine pages, nuanced narratives are created. The resulting complex imagery peers beneath the veneer of mass media and raises questions about chance and intentionality. You can learn more in Tara's video artist statement below.
When you come to Slamdance this year be sure to see Tara's illuminated version of the festival's key art.
You can find more of Tara and her work on Instagram.
Slamdance 2023 will take place in-person from January 20-26 in Park City and Salt Lake City, Utah and virtually from January 23-29. Passes are available now.
