Lisa Corinne Davis in Siena
A new free contemporary art event from our friends at Siena Art Institute!
Tuesday, 6.00 P.M. Free entrance.
Over the course of nearly two decades, Lisa Corinne Davis has created a wide range of work – from collage to drawings to paintings and sometimes a mélange of all three - that examines her place in the world, and, by extension, the place of an individual in modern society.
Born in Baltimore, currently living and working in Brooklyn, New York, Davis received her BFA from Pratt Institute (1980), and her MFA from Hunter (1983). She has exhibited her work across the United States, and is currently represented by Gerald Peters Gallery in New York, NY, Galerie Gris in Hudson, NY, Zolla/Liebermans, Chicago, IL, and the Mayor Gallery in London.
Her work is included in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Lisa’s work has been reviewed by The New York Times, Art in America, and Art News.
She is the recipient of numerous awards, including The Louis Comfort Tiffany, a National Endowment for the Arts Visual Artist Fellowship, and two New York Foundation for the Arts Visual Arts Fellowships.
Lisa has written several essays on art and culture for the Brooklyn Rail. In addition, she has taught art for the past twenty years at the Cooper Union School of Art, Yale University, and currently is a Professor at Hunter College in New York.
