J. Louise Makary's first film debuted at the American Dance Festival in 2006. Since then, she has developed projects influenced by video art, classic and experimental cinema, and contemporary dance. From 2008 to 2010, she was artist-in-residence at the Philadelphia Society for the Preservation of Landmarks through their Contemporary Projects initiative. Her residency culminated in a solo exhibition at Powel House Museum and fostered in her practice an enduring interest in the ways that films can bring to light issues of control in the public, personal, and social aspects of our lives.
Makary's films and videos have been exhibited at the Institute of Contemporary Art, the Slought Foundation, Vox Populi, Bartram's Garden, NEXUS, and International House, all in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; SPACES in Cleveland, Ohio; Rowan University in Glassboro, New Jersey; and Zodiak Center for New Dance in Helsinki, Finland. Her live performances have been presented at the Icebox Project Space at Crane Arts, AUX Performance Space at Vox Populi, the Rotunda/Bowerbird, and NEXUS in Philadelphia. Originally trained as a writer and editor at the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, Makary earned an MFA in film at Temple University in 2013.
Makary was named a 2013 Pew Fellow in the Arts. She attended the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture in summer 2014 and will be in residence at the 18th Street Arts Center in Santa Monica, California, in summer 2015 and at RAIR Philly in fall 2015.
