      Rebecca Shapass is a filmmaker and artist investigating documentary form and archival practice through the creation of film & video, photo, installation, and text. In her studio, she combines techniques of optical & aural abstraction with documentary sensibilities to propel audiences into a space of questioning not only what they see & hear – but how and why. Shapass is compelled by the uncapturable – what escapes both image & language — and how these absences haunt memory & archive. Shapass’ work has been exhibited and screened with institutions and festivals including Microscope Gallery (Brooklyn, NY), The Basement @ the Knockdown Center (Queens, NY), Open Signal (Portland, OR), the McDonough Museum of Art (Youngstown,OH), amongst others. In 2018-2019, she was a resident at Smack Mellon Artist Studio Program (Brooklyn, NY) where she was also a NY Community Trust Van Lier Fellow. She has participated in residencies with NURTUREart (Brooklyn, NY), Signal Culture (Owego, NY), and Crosstown Arts (Memphis, TN). Rebecca graduated from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts where she studied Film & Television and Art History. She is currently pursuing her MFA at Carnegie Mellon University (May 2023).
