Marie Lorenz: Travelogue
Marie Lorenz is a visual artist based in Brooklyn. In her ongoing project The Tide and Current Taxi, Lorenz takes participants through New York waterways in boats that she designs and builds, using tidal current to propel the boat. Recent solo exhibitions include Waterways at the Susanne Lemberg Usdan Gallery, Bennington College in Vermont, Ash Heap / Landfill at the Lupin Foundation Gallery, Lamar Dodd School of Art in Athens, Georgia, and Ezekia at Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York. Recent group shows include The Sorcerer's Burden: Contemporary Art and the Anthropological Turn at The Contemporary in Austin, Texas, and The Commuter Biennial produced with a grant from the Knight Foundation in Miami, Florida. Lorenz was recently awarded a Creative Capital grant for a project premiering in 2023, an opera set and performed along the Newtown Creek in New York City. Other residencies and honors include the Joseph H. Hazen Rome Prize for the American Academy in Rome in 2008 and a Harpo Foundation grant for her exhibition at Locust Projects in Miami in 2011. Lorenz received a B.F.A. from Rhode Island School of Design and an M.F.A. from Yale and is represented by Jack Hanley Gallery in New York.
