Bobby AbateBiography: Bobby Abate (New Haven, 1973) came of age as a social misfit glued to his personal computer and submerged in a digital underground charged by fantasy, role-play, sexuality, and vice -- dynamics that continuously shape his darkly humorous and sensual works in film, video, 3D animation, and installation. Bobby’s work has been exhibited most recently at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, the Moscow International Film Festival, the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art, the San Francisco Cinematheque, the Image Forum tour of Japan, Art Basel/ Miami, and the Institutes of Contemporary Art in London and Palm Beach. Bobby’s first feature, Certain Women, made in collaboration with Peggy Ahwesh, premiered as an official selection of the 2004 International Film Festival Rotterdam and won Best Feature at the Chicago Underground Film Festival. Bobby’s 2001 trilogy Real Videos were recognized as one of the top experimental works of 2001 in the Village Voice and One Mile Per Minute was honored as one of the top video works of 2002 in Film Comment Magazine. He is the 2001 recipient of the Princess Grace Award from the Princess Grace Foundation. Bobby received his BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and MFA from Bard College and is currently based in Brooklyn, New York. He is an associate professor in the New School University’s Graduate of Media Studies program.
