Biography

Lucy Raven is an artist based in New York. Her work has been exhibited at art and film spaces internationally, including the Museum of Modern Art, Mass MoCA, The Wexner Center for the Arts, Storefront for Art and Architecture, Overgaden, and the Nevada Museum of Art. Recent work, including her photographic animation China Town (2009), is currently on view at PS 1 as part of Greater New York, and will be shown this fall at the Princeton Art Gallery in the exhibition "Land, Space, Territory". Raven has been a resident artist with The Center for Land Use Interpretation and The Wexner Center for the Arts, and was a participating filmmaker at this year's Flaherty Film Seminar, curated by Dennis Lim. She is a Contributing Editor to BOMB Magazine where she writes occasionally about art and film. She interviewed Mike Davis for their Summer, 2008, issue, and a conversation between Raven and Thom Andersen appeared in the September 2010 issue of Artforum. Her recent writing is included in the catalogues of Rachel Harrison (CCS/Whitechapel, 2010), Deborah Stratman (Gahlberg Gallery, 2010) and Nancy Shaver (Feature, 2008) and in the introduction to a book of the photographs of Magnum photojournalist Inge Morath (Road to Reno, 1960, Steidl 2007). In 2008, Raven cocurated "The Marfa Sessions," a series of sonic artworks in the public and private spaces around Marfa, Texas (with Rebecca Gates and Regine Basha), a project which grew out of her audiomagazine The Relay Project (coedited with Gates, 2004), and this summer, she coorganized (with Fionn Meade) a group exhibition called Nachleben at the Goethe Institute's Wyoming Building, which took up the ideas and methodologies of 20th century German art historian Aby Warburg. She is currently teaching at Cooper Union and the School of Visual Arts.
