Lisa Anne Auerbach

Assistant Professor of Art

Collectively, Lisa Anne Auerbach’s art examines the curious Do It Yourself ways in which humans communicate with each other – through architecture, through language, through knitted symbols.

Her work ranges from knitted banners, sweaters, pants and skirts, to zines both large and small, and includes photography as well as painted gouaches on paper. The artist uses all of these various and seemingly disparate media as an alternative distribution of ideas and language. Themes such as the declarations by psychics and tarot card readers, issues surrounding reproductive rights for women, the current fad and proliferation of hashtags in our culture, the rise of megachurches, as well as her love of cats, are all woven into the various media as a means of disseminating issues both private and public to a larger audience.

Her work has been featured in the Whitney Biennial, New York, NY, 2014; "Abstract America Today," at The Saatchi Gallery, London, UK, 2014; "Chicken Strikken," at Malmö Konsthall, Malmö, SE 2012;  "United We Stand," Hammer Museum AIR: Artist in Residence, Los Angeles, CA, 2012.
