The Art of Burning Man is a live digital image show by award winning filmmaker Joanna Priestley that celebrates the explosive creativity of the Burning Man festival in northern Nevada. It features sculptures, architecture, installations and mutant vehicles made from 2002 to 2022, plus the world premiere of Fleeting Marvels, a new short film about Burning Man and the Portland premiere of Priestley’s new, award winning animated short Jung & Restless. An audience question and answer session with Priestley and film crew members will follow the presentation.

*Back by popular demand, we are hosting an encore presentation of The Art of Burning Man. This will be the same presentation we hosted in November of 2023.

Joanna Priestley has directed, animated, and produced 32 award winning films and the iOS app Clam Bake. Her animated feature, North of Blue, won Best Experimental Film at the Indie Film Awards in Amsterdam and Best Feature Film at the Los Angeles Animation Festival. Priestley’s work maintains a high level of porosity between serious exploration of boundaries and intuitive whimsy, and she is dedicated to experimentation in technique, theme, and content. She has had retrospectives at the British Film Institute (London), Museum of Modern Art (New York), Center for Contemporary Art (Warsaw, Poland), American Cinematheque (Los Angeles), Hiroshima International Animation Festival (Japan), Jeonju International Film Festival (South Korea), Animation Masters Summit (Trivandrum, India) and Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film (Germany). Priestley has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, American Film Institute, MacDowell Colony, Fundación Valparaíso and Creative Capital. She was founding president of ASIFA Northwest and she is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the Short Films and Feature Animation Executive Committee. Priestley annually juries the Oscars, Student Academy Awards and many other film festivals and her other passions include medicinal herbalism and creating projects at Burning Man. She lives next to the forest in Portland, Oregon with her husband, director/production designer Paul Harrod.
