Bard Faculty

Jackie Goss

An professor of film and electronic arts, Jacqueline Susan Goss also teaches in the Science, Technology, and Society Program at Bard. She specializes in video, animation, and new media.
Goss received her B.A. from Brown University and an M.F.A. from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and has been on the faculty at Bard since 2001. Her latest film project, The Observers (2011), takes her back to her native New Hampshire, where she chronicles the work of climatologists at the Mount Washington Observatory, which Slant Magazine called "a compelling visual essay, in semi-documentary form, on watchful isolation and near-monastic work amid the brutish extremes of nature." Her other recent video and Web-based works include Stranger Comes to Town (2007), How to Fix the World (2004), There, There, Square (2002), and The 100th Undone (2001). Exhibitions and screenings of her work have taken place at the Museum of Modern Art, American Museum of Natural History, Eyebeam Atelier, Rotterdam Film Festival, New York Film Festival, London Film Festival, and Pacific Film Archives. In 2012, she was named a United States Artists (USA) Rockefeller Fellow, receiving an unrestricted $50,000 award. She is also a recipient of the award for Best Feature-Length Work at Migrating Forms (2011), a Media Arts Fellowship from the Rockfeller Foundation/Tribeca Film Institute (2008), Alpert Award in the Arts (2007), Gus Van Sant Award at the Ann Arbor Film Festival (2007), DAAD Fellowship (2005), Creative Capital Award (2005), Jerome Foundation Award (2003), New York State Council on the Arts Award (2002), and New York Foundation for the Arts Award (1998). She is a contributor to the gURL, alt-x, and beehive websites.
