Laida Lertxundi (Bilbao, 1981) is a filmmaker and artist living and working in Los Angeles, California. Her work, shot primarily on 16mm in and around Los Angeles, is made with people, landscapes and sounds, and employs a fragmentary approach to editing in which cinematic forms of storytelling are replaced by a focus on process and materiality. Lertxundi received a MFA from the California Institute of the Arts and a BFA from Bard College.
As Permanent Collection Curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Dana Miller has concentrated primarily on the museum’s collection and organized the major loan exhibition Buckminster Fuller: Starting with the Universe, co-curated with Michael Hays, which was awarded first prize for Architecture and Design exhibitions by the International Association of Art Critics in 2008.
