Gate Pages :: May 01: Margot Lovejoy


 

Margot Lovejoy's use of new technologies for her installations, artists books and websites opens up a discourse on the ways new media are influencing and changing notions of the individual in a social context. Her first website parthenia.com (1995, a monument to victims of domestic violence) has been archived by the Walker Art Center as part of the pioneering site adaweb.com. She is Professor of Visual Arts at the State University of New York at Purchase; author of "Postmodern Currents: Art and Artists in the Age of Electronic Media" (1997); recipient of a 1988 Guggenheim Fellowship and a 1994 Arts International Grant in India. Exhibited internationally, she has had many solo exhibitions in and around New York including those at P.S.#1 Contemporary Art Center; Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art; the Alternative Museum, and the Queens, Neuberger and Islip Museums of Art.
