Jane Lackey: Mapping Active-Passive

Department of Art Lecture Series

Jane Lackey will lecture about the influences and resources that have guided the trajectory of her work over time. Long engaged in cross-disciplinary intersections, Lackey’s artworks infuse materials and process with active thinking. Conceptual ideas are slowly traced, entwined and materialized in drawings, sculpture and installations. Illusive aspects of movement, communication and our physical selves circulate in a narrative of mapped systems. Intimate and hand held or large scale and ambulatory, her works evoke self-reflection, scrutiny, comparison and interaction.

Lackey grew up in Tennessee and moved to the west coast where she earned a BFA from California College of the Arts and MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. Her artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally including the Wellcome Trust, London; Contemporary Art Space, Osaka, Japan; I Space, Chicago; Exit Art, NYC; Tang Museum, NY; Detroit Institute of the Arts, MI; The Art Gym, OR; Bellevue Art Museum and New Mexico Museum of Art. She has received grants from Artist Trust, Seattle, the NEA and the Illinois Arts Council. Residency/fellowships include La Napoule Foundation, 1989; Camargo Foundation, 2005 and the JUSFC/NEA Creative Artist Exchange Fellowship in Japan, 2011. She was Professor at Kansas City Art Institute and then Artist-in-Residence, Fiber at Cranbrook Academy of Art. She is currently an independent artist based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Publications include The Map as Art by Katherine Harmon, Art Now by Edward Lucie-Smith and Jane Lackey (monograph), Telos Art Publishing.
