Lilli Carré is an interdisciplinary artist from Los Angeles, working in experimental animation, print, and ceramic sculpture. Recent works focus on perceived misbehaviors, bodily communication, and the grotesque. She is particularly interested in the open-ended possibilities and histories of the animated body – simultaneously physical and virtual, free of expectations or fixed form.


Lilli’s films have screened in festivals worldwide, including Sundance, Rotterdam, Annecy, 25FPS, EMAF, New Chitose, Pictoplasma, Guanajuato Film Festival, and Ann Arbor. She is the co-director of the Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation, held annually in LA, Chicago, and NY since 2010. 


She has created over 100 handmade artist books, zines, and comics over the years. Several of her graphic novels have been published by Fantagraphics and she has contributed original work to The New Yorker, The New York Times, the LA Philharmonic, and The Poetry Foundation. Exhibitions of her drawing, animation, and sculpture have included a solo show at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. Her work has been supported by artist residencies at MacDowell, Yaddo, Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, and a 2024 Guggenheim Fellowship.


Lilli is based in Los Angeles and currently teaches in the Experimental Animation program at CalArts.
