Gale Memorial Lecture Series: Kristin Lucas

Kristin Lucas, the first speaker in the Department of Art & Art History Gale Memorial Lecture Series, appears TOMORROW at ARTS Lab!

WHEN: Wednesday, October 14th at noon
WHERE: ARTS Lab Garage, 131 Pine St. NE


Kristin Lucas creates video, installation, intervention, digital photographs, sculpture, and Internet artworks. Positioning herself at the center of her projects, Lucas' work addresses the effects of rapid-spread technology on the human condition. Reversing a popular concept of infusing humanity into machines she instead applies familiar strategies of electronic media to her own life. Transformations, mutations, and portraiture are the focus of works set to the backdrop of empty and meaningful exchanges with automated tellers, television, shopping malls, healing arts therapists, police officers, and a judge.

Lucas' work has been exhibited in numerous group exhibitions, including the Art Gallery of Windsor; Images Festival, Toronto; ICA, London; ZKM, Karlsruhe; Cheekwood Museum, Nashville; The Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the New Museum of Contemporary Art, and Artists Space, New York. She has had solo exhibitions at Postmasters Gallery, New York; And/Or Gallery, Dallas; Or Gallery, Vancouver; Plugin, Basel; Windows, Brussels; the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York; O.K Center for Contemporary Arts, Linz, Austria; and FACT, Liverpool, England.

Lucas has been awarded numerous artist residencies including the Edith Russ Site for Media Art New Work Stipend, Oldenburg, Germany; the 13th International Studio Program of ACC Weimar and the City of Weimar, Germany; World Views, Experimental Television Center, Harvestworks, Marie Walsh Sharpe Space Program and P.S.1 National Studio Program, New York; and the ARCUS A.I.R. Program, Ibaraki, Japan.
