I can’t remember if she is on the list (she hasn’t posted, so I’m guessing
not), but Amy Beste has curated a show for the Conversations at the Edge
series in Chicago:

Chicago, Illinois: Conversations at the Edge
6pm, 164 N. State St

  Celebrated West Coast filmmaker Chick Strand (1931-2009) left behind a
  radical body of work exploring the space between documentary and poetry,
  truth and fiction, and the politics and pleasures of representation. A
  key figure in American independent and avant-garde film, Strand was a
  co-founder of Canyon Cinema in the mid-1960s and began her own
  filmmaking career at age 34, while an ethnography student at UCLA. This
  tribute includes her films Soft Fiction (1979), an exploration of female
  sexuality that raises provocative questions about storytelling, memory,
  and the performance of one's self, and the exquisitely abstract
  Kristallnacht (1979), an homage to Anne Frank and the resilience of the
  human spirit. 1979, USA, 16mm, ca. 75 min.
