Catherine Pancake is an award-winning visual and sound artist whose film, installation, and fine art works address social critique and change as well as formal ingenuity and experimentation. Catherine's work has been exhibited in major museums (Museum of Modern Art - MoMA) and critiqued in international art publications like Artforum. Nonetheless, Catherine views their practice as deeply rooted in the local & personal, exploring their immediate community in Pennsylvania, their identity as a queer/trans person/parent, and on-going explorations of ecological/environmental/family trauma and healing. Catherine also engages in a rigorous practice of curating and supporting fellow artists through a fine arts gallery in their home. Catherine is also an educator teaching at Temple University with research interests in the relationship of queerness and sound, as well as pedagogical approaches to overcoming inequity in high school technical training for students in freshman film and media arts classes.
