  • Anne Bray is an artist and director of Freewaves. As an artist, she works at the intersection of public space and media art. As director of the nonprofit media arts organization, Freewaves, co-founded in 1989, her work includes mounting eleven biennial festivals presenting more than 3000 artists with the partnership of 125 curators and more than 100 organizations that have been held at Los Angeles’ Museum of Contemporary Art, the Getty Center, Hammer Museum, on Hollywood Blvd. and on Chinatown streets. She has been supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, the MacArthur, Rockefeller, Rauschenberg, and Warhol Foundations. Freewaves’ 21st anniversary was celebrated at Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 2010 with an exhibition and a launch of a book, DVD and new web archive. Recently she has been showing artists videos on Metro buses and projecting poems at public events. Anne Bray is a visual instigator and translator. Her specialty is finding platforms for pressing and compelling subjects to be broached from various angles in different media. She exhibits work in formats that the public, often unaware of contemporary art, can comprehend without the work losing its integrity. In her art, like in her career, she contrasts different points of view side by side. Viewers are asked to examine themselves and questions are often the format.
