b. United States, 1950
Ilene Segalove, a Los Angeles native born in 1950,​​ is a conceptual artist best known for​ her work in videography. Segalove’s introduction to video art began with the guidance of Billy Adler, a professor at UC Santa Barbara. Segalove received her BA in Fine Arts from UC Santa Barbara in 1972, before going on to receive a master’s degree in Communication Art at Loyola Marymount University in 1975. She continues to live and work in the Los Angeles area, with exhibitions spanning from New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art to contemporary art museums in Paris. Since the 1970s, Segalove has received several National Endowment for the Arts grants for her contributions to photography, video, and radio. Segalove’s love of these mediums developed as she watched television as a child, becoming infatuated with notions of projected façades and realities. In a 1990 interview with the Los Angeles Times, she stated, “I​ think the fine line between fact and fiction, that line was what I saw when I watched television.” In the midst of creating witty and self-reflective art, Segalove has also taught new generations of artists at several California universities, including her Santa Barbara alma mater.
