Working collaboratively within traditions of fine art performance and community organizing, Lacy has realized large-scale projects in London, Brooklyn, Medellin, Los Angeles, Quito, Northwest England, Madrid and, most recently, along the Irish Border, exploring local reactions to Brexit. In 2019 she had a career retrospective at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and at Yerba Buena Art Center.

Her work has been reviewed in The Village Voice, Frieze Magazine, Artforum, L.A. Times, New York Times, Art in America, and The Guardian, and in numerous books and periodicals. She has exhibited at Tate Modern in London, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, the Whitney Museum, the New Museum and P.S. 1 in New York, and the Bilbao Museum in Spain. She has received fellowships from the Rockefeller Bellagio residency program, the Guggenheim Foundation, The Henry Moore Foundation, The National Endowment for the Arts and most recently the James H. Zumberge Faculty Research and Innovation Fund from the University of Southern California.

Also known for her writing and academic career, Lacy edited Mapping the Terrain: New Genre Public Art and is author of Leaving Art: Writings on Performance, Politics, and Publics, 1974-2007.

Hunter East Harlem Gallery
2180 3rd Avenue and 119th Street
New York, NY

Through February 29

Through painting, sculpture, and tapestry Lisa McCleary addresses the sensation of touch. In her work, McCleary creates a space in which desire, tactility, the body, and digital representation come together. Through her work, McCleary examines mediated corporeality, rendering the body into an abject and sensuous landscape and filtering the human form through many screens. Interested in the pleasure of flesh and the way that pleasure translates into our desire for tools of communication, McCleary’s work explores our tactile relationship to industrial materials. Using paint, she explores the erotic quality of the oozing landscapes, wet folds of metaphorical flesh, sexual arousal, and “otherness.”

Lisa McCleary is an Irish-Australian artist currently living in New York. In 2015, she received her BFA from UNSW Art & Design in Sydney, and in 2018 she completed her MFA at Parsons, The New School, in New York. She has exhibited internationally, and recently had a solo exhibition, “Edging”, at Gallery MC (New York). In 2018, she was chosen as a winner of the RE: ARTISTE, Show Your World, International Juried Art Competition at Gallery MC, and, in 2019, she was selected as a finalist for the William and Dorothy Yeck Young Painters Competition at Miami University and was awarded the Presidential Scholarship from the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Colorado. She has been an artist-in-resident at Trestle Artist Residency (Brooklyn), the Summer Painting Residency at the School of Visual Arts (Manhattan), and the Vermont Studio Residency (Johnson, VT).

The Extraordinary is a group exhibition of eight artists who are currently in the process of gaining, or currently possess an O-1 Non-immigration Visa: Individuals with Extraordinary Ability or Achievement. The exhibition seeks to bring transparency to this process and at the same time, inspect the system which requires those to have “distinction” and be “renowned” in the arts—a subjective and complicated qualification. The Extraordinary is an exhibition that visa-seeking individuals will be able to list on their CVs for qualification for the Visa through the US Government. Complimentary public programming will include workshops with immigration lawyers, support group meetings with other visa seekers and awardees, artist talks and tours, among other relevant events. PROGRAMMING LINE UP TO COME SOON. Stay tuned.
