Lisa Brice

Lisa Brice (b. 1968, Cape Town) lives and works in London. Brice contests the misogynistic nature of historical figuration typically painted by white men for white men and takes ownership over how women are portrayed. Working within the parameters of art history, she echoes iconic compositions by artists such as Degas, Manet and Picasso, but instead lends her muses agency and self-possession. Her interiors draw on the artist’s personal experience from living and working between South Africa, London and Trinidad over the past 20 years. In 2018, Brice had a solo exhibition at Tate Britain, London as part of their Art Now series. Brice will have a major institutional exhibition at GEM, The Netherlands in late 2020. Other solo exhibitions include those at Stephen Friedman Gallery, London (2020 and 2017); Salon 94, New York (2017); and Goodman Gallery, Johannesburg (2015). Notable group exhibitions include Artists I Steal From, Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, London (2019); La Diablesse, Tramps, London (2016); Home Truths: Domestic Interior in South African Collections (curated by Michael Godby), South African National Gallery, Cape Town (2016); and Making & Unmaking, Camden Arts Centre, London (2016).
