Shannon Crider, a Houston-based visual artist, is a resident of the 2017-2018 Artist Studio Program at Lawndale Art Center. Through re-photographing and re-staging stills from television, Crider's work investigates the impact of contemporary representations of women in our televisual culture. Her two- and three-dimensional works employ collage, sewing, and print to construct new spaces that reflect the psychogenic space of female subjectivity in popular culture. She has exhibited throughout the United States, including Artists Looking at Art at the McNay Art Museum in San Antonio, Texas, the 2013 Texas Biennial, and Hardesty Arts Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Crider earned an MFA in Printmedia from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2016) and her Bachelor's from Oklahoma City University (2008). In addition to her art practice, Crider serves as the Director of Education and Community Engagement at the Society for the Performing Arts in Houston.
