Nancy Buchanan's works, which are often socio-documentary with a wry sense of humor, have been exhibited and screened in galleries
and museums in the U.S. and Europe, including the Museum of Modern Art (NY), the New Museum (NY), the American Center in
Paris, Ars Electronica (Linz, Austria). Steirischer Herbst, (Graz, Austria). In 1999, she received an artist's fellowship from the City of Los
Angeles to create new work, and she has received four NEA Artist Fellowships in New Genres, Performance, and Video. Travel grants
allowed her time in Romania and Vietnam; she has had residencies at The Experimental Television Centre in New York and The Banff
Centre for the Arts in Alberta. In 1996 she received a Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship in Interactive Media which enabled her to
complete Developing: The Idea of Home, an interactive CD-ROM examining the notion of home in the context of the politics of land use,
and an in-progress video installation piece. She is on the Live Action faculty of California Institute of the Arts, where she has taught video
production and video art history since 1988. From 1985-1988, she facilitated community video workshops for youth and adults,
sponsored by a California Arts Council grant. As well as having participated in various artist-run organizations, such as LACE, The Los
Angeles Womans Building, and LACPS, she was a co-founder and producer of CLOSE Radio with artist Paul McCarthy; she has also
curated exhibitions and screenings and published reviews in High Performance magazine for several years.
