Hannah Subotnick

Critic - Film/Animation/Video

Hannah Subotnick (b.1992, Providence, RI) makes art using film, animation, photography, dance and sound. She holds an MFA from Stanford University in Art Practice, a BFA from RISD in Film/Animation/Video and an AB from Brown University in Modern Culture and Media. She received professional training in ballet, modern dance and folk dance.

Although her work crosses many disciplines, at its core is a love of the transformative potential of the lens and its ability to abstract, reveal, transport and enchant. In her most recent body of work, she explores embroidery as a dance of attachment, devotion and eroticism.

Subotnick has been an artist-in-residence at Yaddo in Saratoga Springs, NY (2017) and I-Park in East Haddam, CT (2017). She has been awarded grants from Brown University, Stanford University and the Rhode Island State Council for the Arts. Her films have screened internationally.
