Acclaimed experimental filmmaker, James Benning was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1942. He has received grants from the Rockefeller Foundation, Austin Film Society, National Endowment for the Arts, and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. The Austrian Film Museum in Vienna, presented a retrospective of his films in 2007. Recent work, Two Cabins, centers around two cabins that he replicated on his property in the Sierra foothills: Henry David Thoreau's shelter from Walden Pond and Ted Kaczynski's plywood shack. His installations have been staged at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and Argos Centre for Art and Media, Brussels. Earlier this year, he had his first solo museum exhibition, Decoding Fear, at Kunsthaus Graz, Austria. His films have shown throughout Asia, the Americas, and Europe. He teaches film/video at CalArts.
