Angelo Madsen Minax works in film and video, sound and music, text, and media installation. His projects draw on auto-ethnography, psychodynamics, and phenomenology – they are about love, death, and sex, rendered through personal and collective histories in art, punk, queer, rural, and activist cultures. Madsen’s works have shown at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, the Leslie-Lohman Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Tom of Finland Institute, Anthology Film Archives, the British Film Institute, KurzFilm Hamburg, BAM CinemaFest, the European Media Art Festival, Ann Arbor Film Festival, Berwick Media Art Festival, Outfest, Newfest, Frameline, and others. His new film NORTH BY CURRENT (2021), premiered at Berlinale and the Tribeca Film Festival, and will screen on PBS as part of season 34 of POV this fall, 2021. Madsen is an Associate Professor of Time-Based Media at the University of Vermont and a Queer|Art Mentor.
