Shana Lutker is Los Angeles-based artist. Her interdisciplinary work in sculpture, performance, writing, and installation foregrounds an uncanny relationship between memory and history. Lutker’s work explores the fuzzy barriers between the internal mind and external world, between subject and object, and the role that language plays in crossing these borders. Solo exhibitions and performance include the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Pérez Art Museum Miami, Vielmetter Los Angeles, and Barbara Seiler Galerie in Zürich. Lutker’s work was included in the 2014 Whitney Biennial, Performa 13, and many US and international venues including the SculptureCenter, Hauser & Wirth, CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, Moscow Museum of Modern Art, and Orange County Museum of Art. Her work has been written about in Art in America, Artforum, Artillery, Flash Art, Frieze, Hyperallergic, Los Angeles Times, and The New York Times, among others. From 2014-2021, Lutker served as Executive Director of Project X Foundation for Art & Criticism, the nonprofit publisher of X-TRA, and was also on the editorial board and Managing Editor from 2004-2014. She received her MFA from UCLA and BA from Brown University.
