Artist, performer and filmmaker, Maidoff’s work is held in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and in the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum. Her films have toured internationally, including screenings at the Guggenheim and Pecci Museums.  She has been a recipient of artist residencies at Yaddo, VCCA, and the Wexner Center for the Arts. Her work and home is included in the annual Venice Art Walk in Venice, CA and she just exhibited at the Currents New Media Festival in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

In her newest work she has taken on themes surrounding the world where she’s been living: in the foothills of Appalachia. “The Fullest Day of Summer” is a narrative film that touches on the issues of young women, “opiate orphans,” effected by the opiate crisis in southeast Ohio. “The Paw Paw” is a short experimental film about a relationship between mentor and student, nature and self.

Maidoff is also completing the last of her “Live Cinema!” series, a group of visual essays that unfold in triptych. Maidoff takes on the characters of a sleepwalker, cowgirl and then motherboard to discuss themes of feminine strength and domestic power.

For the past four years Maidoff has been a Visiting Assistant Professor at Ohio University, commuting between Athens, OH and her home in Venice, CA.
