Peggy Ahwesh has made mesmerizing, experimental films and videos for two decades. Her eclectic works explore gender and cultural identities through deeply textured visuals and fascinating narratives. Her work explores dark themes of ritual, sexual exploration, and death through medium-precise methods, from grainy Super-8 to decayed 16mm to the virtuality of digital video. She has taught at Brown University, the San Francisco Art Institute, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, the School of Visual Arts, and currently teaches at Bard College.
