Reeder attracted notice early in her career for her performance and video work as "White Trash Girl," a fictional identity through which the artist explored lower-income white culture in the United States. Interviewed by writer and Northwestern University professor Laura Kipnis for the anthology White Trash: Race and Class in America, Reeder said that white trash "describes a certain esthetic, but I think it's also a socioeconomic situation, and a way of perceiving the world around you and your own place in the world." Her more recent films explore the lives of adolescent girls and their use of music, slang, and fashion to express their identities and aspects of their emotional world.
Her films have screened at the Whitney Biennial; The New York Video Festival; Kunsthalle Exnergasse in Vienna, Austria; the Gene Siskel Film Center; the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco; P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center; the Wexner Center for the Arts; the Chicago Underground Film Festival; and the 48th International Venice Biennial.
Reeder currently teaches in the School of Art and Art History at the University of Illinois, Chicago and holds the position of Associate Professor Moving Image. She is the founder of the social justice group Tracers Book Club, which focuses on feminist issues. Reeder received an MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1996 and is represented by the Andrew Rafacz Gallery in Chicago, Illinois.
