Critical Dialogues Lecture Series


tomorrow November 30th
11 am, Auditorium B04

Born 1962 in Philadelphia/ lives and works in Brooklyn.
Lisa Sigal's work lies at the intersection of painting, sculpture and architecture. Her constructions insinuate themselves into the fabric of the built environment.She will take a Sheetrock wall, cut into it, pull back sections, poke a sightline through to a false or a found wall on which she has exposed or composed a painted surface. Sigal's work frames a view which often blurs the distinction between what is found and what is made and ultimately what is real. The core of her work questions the formal and philosophical stability of structure. Recent exhibitions include: "Make Room," Atlanta Contemporary Art Center (2009), "Six Degrees," The New Museum, The Whitney Biennial (2008), "Tent Paintings," Frederieke Taylor Gallery, New York (2007), "The Orpheus Selection," P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, Long Island City (2007), "Make It Now," Sculpture Center, Long Island City, (2005) "A House of Many Mansions," The Aldrich Museum, Ridgefield, Conneticut (2005). Upcoming solo shows at LAX Art in Los Angelos, CA and Norma Gallery, San Francisco, CA.
