About

Irit Reinheimer is an artist and media maker based in Philadelphia. In her creative endeavors, she works across disciplines to find the most appropriate media to express and communicate her ideas. This has lead Irit on a journey that began in fine arts with sculptural installations exploring the relationship between women and work, then continued to documentary and experimental film focusing on ideas of identity and loss. Most recently, she has delved into the world of production design for film, where her experience with both installation and video has been put to a new use. Irit is dedicated to her craft and continues to create her own work; her love for community and collective projects often steers her to collaborations. Irit’s films                                                                 have been screened in the U.S. and abroad. She was a                                                                 recipient of the Leeway Foundation’s Art and Change                                                                 Award in 2006.
