Eve LaFountain

Eve LaFountain (she/her) is an enrolled member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa. She earned a BA from Hampshire College in 2008, and a dual MFA from CalArts in Film & Video and Photography & Media in 2014. She grew up in Santa Fe, New Mexico where she learned how to ride a horse instead of a bike. Her art practice investigates her mixed Indigenous and Jewish heritages, feminisms, mysticisms, and ghosts through lens based media and installations. She has received fellowships from Sundance New Frontier Lab, Tribeca Institute, and Flaherty Film Seminar. Her work has been shown across the US and internationally in several film festivals including Images, ImagineNATIVE, Crossroads, Camden International, and the Smithsonian Museum American Indian Film Festival. Her first solo museum exhibition was mounted in 2015 at the Museum of Contemporary Native Art, and she has also exhibited work at The Autry Museum, The Walker Art Center, The Venice Biennale, Los Angeles Filmforum, and more. She teaches alternative photographic processes at CalArts, Experimental Filmmaking at Otis College of Art and Design, and curates screenings and teaches hand processing classes at the Echo Park Film Center. When she's not at CalArts, you can usually find her in her garden with her large black cat, on a yoga mat, or in a darkroom.
