Louise Lawler

Louise Lawler was born in Bronxville, New York, in 1947. She came to prominence in the 1980s with her own sophisticated and very postmodern brand of re-photographed artwork. She has had solo exhibitions at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington D.C., among others. Lawler collaborated with Douglas Crimp on the seminal book The Museum's Ruins. She lives in New York.
