Elizabeth Leister engages a practice that includes video, performance, drawing and visual & augmented reality. Her projects act as meditations on the unreliability of memory, the blurring of precise personal and historic details and the passing of time conceptualized through a feminist perspective on the female body, language and landscape.
Her work has been presented at the Torrance Art Museum, Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Delaware Museum of Art; The Drawing Center, Art in General, and P.S. 122 in NY, Counterpath in Denver and Highways Performance Space and Gallery in Santa Monica in addition to various artist-run spaces.
She earned an MFA from the Milton Avery Graduate School of Fine Arts at Bard College and a BFA from Tyler School of Art at Temple University. Leister is currently an Assistant Professor of Multimedia Production in the Cinema and Television Arts Department at CSUN.
