Toby Lee is an interdisciplinary artist and a PhD candidate in Social Anthropology and Film & Visual Studies at Harvard University. She works in video, installation, performance, book arts, and collaborative research artists. Her projects draw from ideas and practices central to anthropology, often exploring the social experience of space, temporality, and history. Her dissertation is an ethnographic and historical study of the Thessaloniki International Film Festival and its relationship to its host city, looking at how public culture and its institutions mediate the collective experience of place. She is currently a Harvard Film Study Center Fellow and a Fulbright Fellow in Greece.
