Lisa Anne Auerbach

Lisa Anne Auerbach is an interdisciplinary artist that explores novel vehicles for controversial agendas and language’s ability to alter the present. She is most well-known for her machine-made knit clothing and banners that host tongue-in-cheek political catchphrases, quotation, statistics, and mantras. These conceptual text works present the “body as billboard.” They have been presented as installations and performances to challenge neutrality in fashion, feminist radicality, and the capabilities of advocacy and activism. Auerbach has exhibited at Printed Matter in New York, Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, Baltimore Contemporary Museum, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit, and the Socrates Sculpture Park in New York. Several elements representative of her practice—including a knit banner, clothing ensembles, and her zine American Megazine—were exhibited at the 2014 Whitney Biennial. She teaches at Pomona College.
