Krowswork is named for crows, genus corvus, which are ubiquitous, democratic, ornery, smart, serious, funny, community-oriented, watchful, and fearless. I see the same thing in video and photography.


Krowswork is a palindrome.

Jasmine Moorhead, owner and director of Krowswork, sitting in pews of main screening area. The daughter of two artists, a photographer and a sculptor, Moorhead grew up in Oxford, Mississippi. She attended Yale and received her degree in art history. From September 1996 to April 1997 she lived in a small village in central Cote d'Ivoire, West Africa, studying pottery making. Moorhead has worked in numerous galleries and museums, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Dia Center for the Arts, New York. Her wish for Krowswork is that it provide an instinctual, intellectual, and poetic framework within which to examine the mediums of photography and video in a larger art/historical context.
