Deborah Stratman is a Chicago-based artist and filmmaker interested in landscapes and systems. Her films, rather than telling stories, pose a series of problems – and through their at times ambiguous nature, allow for a complicated reading of the questions being asked. She has exhibited internationally at venues including the Whiteney Biennial, MoMA, the Pompidou, Hammer Museum and many international film festivals including Sundance, the Viennale, Ann Arbor and Rotterdam. She is the recipient of Fulbright and Guggenheim fellowships and she currently teaches at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Stratman is a current Artist in Residence at the University of Houston Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts and is the guest curator of Tex Hex: Pop Up Cinema event that will be held along the Buffalo Bayou on May 21 in conjunction with the Buffalo Bayou Partnership.
