Cassie Riger

Cassie Riger works in video, installation, performance, and photography to critically engage
with the history of moving image practices and their relationship to audiences. Her work
deploys obtuse strategies and handmade elements to simulate the effects of early cinema
viewing experiences, and to engender inquiry and debate about media consumption and
participation.

Riger’s solo exhibitions include Pitzer College Gallery of Art (upcoming), Northwestern
University AIR Studio, Room Gallery, and Right Window gallery. Her work has been
presented in group exhibitions at venues including Last Projects, Fellows of Contemporary
Art, For Your Art, Agency Contemporary, University Art Galleries at UC Irvine, SomArts, and
Artists Television Access. Her performance project “MESHES” was presented at the Plan-B
international art festival in Iceland in 2017, and her 2013 performance “3-2-1 Contact” was
funded by a grant from the University of California Institute for Research in the Arts. Riger has
published criticism and writing on photography, film, and video in Camerawork: A Journal of
Photographic Arts, ArtWeek, and other publications. She holds an 2013 MFA from the
University of California, Irvine, and won a merit fellowship for her MA from the University of Chicago.
