Ruby Que is a Chicago-based installation artist and experimental filmmaker who occasionally performs, carves, and weaves. In their work they open portals and create hauntings. They engage with celluloid film both as a medium and as a material, with a specific interest in the vulnerability of film as a metaphor for the cycle of life. They’ve attended residencies at Vermont Studio Center, ACRE, and No Nation Art Lab amongst others. Their works have been exhibited at Kavi Gupta, Comfort Station, Mana Contemporary, and Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art. They hold a BA from Cornell University and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
