ABOUT THE ARTIST

A multidisciplinary artist, her work takes a unique approach to an exploration of identity by reconstructing the images of both pop culture and historical figures as a form of living art. Lou Rie has exhibited in several countries in Europe and in North America since 2005. She was awarded a fellowship residency at Colorado’s Anderson Ranch Arts Center in 2017.

 

Most recently, she was exhibited at Buffalo, N.Y.’s Rivalry Project. Her work was also featured in the award-winning Spanish TV series Maricón Perdido, and her short film, Catharsis, was runner-up at the 2019 Interfilm Festival in Berlin. Lou Rie’s second most important art is networking to build a better world.
