About Margaret Lanzetta

MARGARET LANZETTA is a New York-based artist best known for abstract, culturally inspired work using digitized motifs drawn from historic textiles, Buddhism, 60’s pop culture, nature and contemporary industry. With varying media: painting, silkscreen, and photography; and a thematic interest in saturated color, repetition and pattern, a lexicon of motifs are used to explore larger issues of political power, and the migration of culture and language. In Lanzetta’s work, patterns collide, and reappear. Her work is represented in numerous museum and private collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; The British Museum, and The Victoria and Albert Museum, London; and the Yale University Art Gallery.
Lanzetta’s work is currently on view in the Museum of Modern Art, New York (group show) and was featured in the 2016 Kochi-Muziris Biennale Collateral Projects, India. Other New York exhibitions include Kenise Barnes Fine Art, 2015, Heskin Contemporary, 2014 (solos); and the Queens Museum Biennial (group). Lanzetta received an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York and is a recipient of several awards including three Fulbright Fellowship: an inaugural Global Flex Award to India/Singapore/Thailand (2016-2018), India/Syria (2007-8) and Germany (1990); and a permanent commission for the New York subway in 2007.
