Laida Lertxundi

Laida Lertxundi (Bilbao, España. 1981) is a filmmaker and artist who lives between Los Angeles and the Basque Country. Her work, mainly shot in 16mm and in Los Angeles, is produced with people, landscapes and sounds and takes a fragmentary approach to editing where the cinematic forms of the narration are substituted by an interest in the process and the material aspect. She has a Degree in Fine Arts earned at the Bard College and a Fine Arts MFA from the California Institute of the Arts. Formerly a professor at CalArts, the Art Center and the University of California San Diego, she is currently coordinator of Filmmaking Studies at the Elías Querejeta Zine Eskola.

Her films have screened at festivals such as Locarno, Toronto, Rotterdam, New York and Edinburgh, as well as in museums and galleries including the MoMa in New York, the Tate Modern and Whitechapel Gallery in London and the Museum of Modern Art in Medellín. She has exhibited alone at the LUX (London), Tramway (Glasgow), Tabakalera (San Sebastian), DA2 (Salamanca) and La Alhóndiga (now the Azkuna Zentroa, Bilbao), among other places. Her work has featured in exhibitions and spaces including the Katonah Museum of Art in New York, the Solar Galeria de Arte Cinemática in Portugal, the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, the Havana Biennal and the Lyon Biennale. Her monographic book, Landscape Plus (Mousse Publishing / fluent) was published in 2019.
