Lisa Sigal

Visual Arts, 2012

Lisa Sigal was born in Philadelphia, PA. She received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2011, Ar Matters Grant in 2012, the Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant and the Elizabeth Foundation Grant in 1998. Her work was included in the 2008 Whitney Biennial and has been exhibited at the New Museum, PS1, Sculpture Center, the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, The Albright Knox, the Brooklyn Museum, the Essl Museum in Vienna, a recent solo exhibit at LAX ART space in Los Angeles and at Samson Projects in Boston. Upcoming shows include Prospect.3 New Orleans Biennial and “Walden,“ at the DeCordiva Sculpture Park and Museum. In her recent work, Sigal has been painting on walls and making forms that combine painting with architecture. Her work suggests a mutable delineation between interior and exterior and explores their meaning both socially and politically. Utilizing and expanding upon notions of space, she investigates how art can challenge set ideas about property, containment and freedom. Sigal received a BFA from the Tyler School of Art in 1985 and an MFA from the Yale School of Art in 1989. Sigal lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
