Lilli Carré

Lilli Carré (American, b. 1983), an interdisciplinary artist currently living in Chicago, is best known for her comics, animated films, and commercial illustration. Her creative practice employs a wide range of media including printmaking, artists’ books, drawing, and ceramic sculpture. Carré’s work, which defies simple classification by medium, encompasses delicate and moving explorations of humor and failure, narrative and time, the human form and abstraction, and presence and mortality.

Her animated films have been shown in festivals throughout the US and abroad, including the Sundance Film Festival, and she is the co-founder of the Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation, now in its 5th year. Her most recent collection of comics, Heads or Tails, will see its second printing from Fantagraphics Books in January 2015. Her work has appeared in The Believer Magazine, The New Yorker, The New York Times, Best American Comics and Best American Nonrequired Reading. Her recent BMO Harris Chicago Works solo show at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago was reviewed in the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Reader and her solo show at Western Exhibitions in Chicago in September was reviewed on Hyperallergic. She has been included in shows at the Columbus Museum of Art in Ohio, the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Wisconsin, the Museum of Cartoon Art in San Francisco, and the DePaul University Art Museum in Chicago.
