Nancy Lee is an interdisciplinary media artist, filmmaker and electronic music curator. Her work stimulates and enlivens space, making a provocative statement about how inescapably interconnected we are with our surroundings. The notion of staging is a constant in Nancy’s work and underpins her projects from a more traditional filmmaker, through her conception and planning of music events, and into the realms of VR and new media performance and installation, where her art practices continue to coalesce and evolve. Nancy recently directed a VR 360 video dance film Tidal Traces” produced by the National Film Board of Canada which has been screened at Mutek, SXSW, and Cannes Film Festival. Nancy is a co-founder of electronic music and art collective Chapel Sound – a collective that has supporting emerging artists in Vancouver for the last 6 years. This year, Nancy co-produced CURRENT: Feminist Electronic Art Symposium, a 5-day multidisciplinary and intersectional music and electronic art symposium working with women and non-binary artists. Supported by BC Arts Council and Canada Council of the Arts, Nancy has performed and presented her work at Vancouver International Jazz Festival, New Forms Festival, International Symposium for Electronic Art (Vancouver & Durban), International Electroacoustic Music Festival, the conference New Interfaces for Musical Expression (Australia), and The International Conference on Live Coding. Nancy is a 2018 YWCA Women of Distinction Nominee for Art, Cultural & Design and is named one of BC’s Most Influential Women in STEM for 2018.
