Lucy McRae, Making is What Matters

Wed, March 30, 2022, 1pm
Colloquium

Lucy McRae (Australian, b. 1979) is the founder of Lucy McRae Studio, established in 2017. McRae is a science-fiction artist, filmmaker, inventor and body architect. Her work speculates on the future of human existence by exploring the limits of the body, beauty, biotechnology and the self. McRae works across installation, film, photography, artificial intelligence and edible technology. As a thought leader, McRae explores the cultural and emotional impacts science and cutting edge technology have on redesigning the body. McRae uses art as a mechanism to signal and provoke our ideologies and ethics about who we are and where we are headed.

McRae has exhibited at museums, film festivals, institutes such as MIT, Ars Electronica and NASA and science forums across the world. Selected major artworks have been exhibited at La Biennale di Venezia, Science Museum London, Centre Pompidou and Triennale di Milano. McRae is a visiting professor at SCI-Arc in Los Angeles; and is recognized as a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum. McRae encourages scientific conversation and has spoken at TED, Royal Albert Hall, Cannes Lion and Tribeca Film Festival. Regarded as a pioneer, McRae blurs the boundaries across art, architecture, design and technology with a healthy disregard for labels that limit interdisciplinary practice.
