Visiting Critic at Wayne State University

Just back from a wonderful visit to Wayne State University. I gave a lecture on my research and practice, toured Detroit, met many wonderful students and faculty in the Art Department, and attended grad critiques. I was thrilled with the variety of work I saw and the support and respect the students had for one another.

About Lisa Young

My hybrid studio practice includes installation, book, video, web, and photography. My projects examine the intersection of the pedestrian, the repetitive, and the imperfect with the transcendent, the beautiful, and the perfect. I am interested in the way that the repetitive action of accumulating and organizing can create its own poetics. I grew up in Illinois, completed the Whitney ISP program in 1996, and teach Interdisciplinary Synthesis at the Lesley University College of Art and Design in Cambridge, MA. You can see my work at
