PROCESS & PRODUCTION /

Struts' focus has long been on supporting artists' production, with a keen interest in the process leading up to the finished work. This section aims to spotlight works or processes in an artist’s practice that don’t always get seen or featured, with an emphasis on the work you made (or would have been making in the case of our 2020 cohort) during the residency. Here you can post and speak about the process or thinking around a particular area of research, a work in progress, an experiment or thought tangent. You can also post links to music or podcasts you were listening to, post books you were reading, or links to other research and supporting material. The idea is provide a glimpse into your working and thinking process.

ABOUT THE ARTIST / AMY SIEGEL

Amy is currently the Creative Director of the ReFrame Film Festival in Nogojiwanong/Peterborough, Ontario and is pursuing a PhD in Communication & Culture at York University. 

Amy is a queer and feminist multimedia artist, educator, and organizer of artistic projects. Amy's art practice spans film, performance and socially-engaged art. Recently, Amy started exhibiting work under the moniker Tourism + Information together with artist Paul Henderson. Amy also plays drums in the queercore pop punk band Pink Eye

Amy has had work at Nuit Blanche, Luminato, SummerWorks Performance Festival, SappyFest and OkQuoi!?! Contemporary Arts Festival and has enjoyed collaborating with many other artists and musicians. From 2011-2016 Amy was co-director of Twelfth House - a projection-based art and performance company with Sean Frey. With the support of the Canada Council, Ontario Arts Council and Toronto Arts Council, Twelfth House produced The Water Thief, an award-winning audience-immersive “living film” that involved a silent film intertwined with elements of live shadow and light play.

As an educator and community artist Amy has worked with schools, museums, non-profit organizations and festivals in the creation and promotion of artistic work. Some organizations include Ahuri Theatre, Regent Park Film Festival, Struts Gallery, Jumblies Theatre, Sexual Assault The Roadshow and co-coordinating Shout Out! a cross-Canada media production and media literacy workshop series for teenage girls. 

Amy holds an MFA in Documentary Media from Ryerson University and an MA in Adult Education and Community Development from the University of Toronto. 

Amy is grateful to live, play, dream and work in Toronto on the traditional territory of the Wendat, Haudenosaunee, Anishinabek, and the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation.
