Legendary lesbian experimental filmmaker Barbara Hammer (1939-2019) passed away this March from endometrioid ovarian cancer tumors, which she approached with similar experimental and fearless nature that she did every thing in her life, and by which she ultimately discovered comfort, acceptance, and brand brand new function. Inside her last years, she worked difficult to be sure we—as a residential area of friends, peers, and fellow artists—were ready with this minute: talking out through lectures, shows, and interviews about one’s directly to perish whenever coping with terminal disease; arranging on her archive of personal documents, research, and movies become safeguarded by the Beinecke Library at Yale; and developing with Queer|Art, inside her title, this grant for lesbian experimental filmmakers.

The Barbara Hammer Lesbian Experimental Filmmaking give can be an annual grant awarded to self-identified lesbians to make visionary moving-image art. The grant is supported straight by funds given by her estate and administered through Queer|Art by lesbians for lesbians, with a rotating panel of judges. In her own last month or two with us, Barbara made a decision to raise the grant amount, as she understood very well that a little bit of economic assistance might make a positive change in a task. In 2010 Queer|Art is pleased to announce that the grant has grown to $6,000.
