Visiting Artist: Lisi Raskin

Lisi Raskin was born in Miami, Florida. She has been the recipient of numerous awards and grants including the Berlin Prize at the American Academy in Berlin and a Creative Time Global Residency. Over the years, Raskin's installations have become laboratories where the artist deliberately builds bridges between politics, utopian architecture, abstraction, collaborative making, non-hierarchical interventions into normative systems of power, and radical pedagogy. Her web projects have been published in Triple Canopy magazine, with The Dia Foundation, and on Creative Time Global Reports. She has built large-scale environments at the 11th International Istanbul Biennale, the 2nd Athens Biennale, and the 3rd Singapore Biennale. Her work is represented by Galleria Riccardo Crespi in Milan, Italy. She is currently the Department Head of Sculpture at the Rhode Island School of Design.
