Lisa Fairstein uses the process of image-making to create conspicuous spaces for narratives of visual analysis. Her works are studies of imaged culture, the language of photography, and the practice of making pictures. Group shows of note include Welcome to the Real, curated by Marco Antonini, White Boys, curated by Hank Willis Thomas, BLOG RE-BLOG at Signal Gallery (Brooklyn), Dancing Queen and Under Ice at Fresh Window (Brooklyn), and Nature Loves Courage, curated by the Wassaic Project. She has been awarded residencies by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Swing Space and the Wassaic Project. Fairstein received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts.
