Guest Judge: May



Lex Brown is an artist, musician and writer. Her work plays with the scale of personal and emotional experience in relation to large scale systems of social and economic organization. She works fluidly across performance, music, video, costume design, sculpture, drawing, poetry and narrative. She has performed and exhibited work at the Tate Modern (London); the New Museum, the High Line, the International Center of Photography, Recess, and The Kitchen (New York); REDCAT Theater and The Hammer Museum in Los Angeles; The Baltimore Museum of Art in Baltimore; and at the Munch Museum in Oslo, Norway. Brown holds degrees from Yale University (MFA) and Princeton University (BA). Brown is the author of My Wet Hot Drone Summer, a sci-fi erotic novella that takes on surveillance and social justice, first edition published by Badlands Unlimited. Consciousness, a survey of Brown's work spanning the past eight years, is newly available from GenderFail. Containing documentation from 46 different videos and performances as well as 33 original song lyrics performed in artist-run spaces, museums, music venues and galleries, it is Brown's first book to have been acquired by the collections of the Met, MoMA, Whitney and New York Public Library.
