Originally trained as a print-maker, Stathacos brings together printmaking, photography, video, and installation in various ways, often creating participatory public art projects. She aims to make new connections between cultures, historical periods, technologies, and environmental issues, which mirror the human processes of change, hope, healing, and mortality. She has exhibited her work in museums, galleries, and public venues in Canada, the USA, Europe and Asia and has received awards from Art Matters, the Japan Foundation, the Canada Council, the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation, and the Puffin Foundation. Throughout the 1970s and early 1980s Stathacos was active in the Toronto artist-run community, curating projects for A-Space, and co-directing The Gap, a performance art space she co-founded in 1980. Since 2001 she has been Director of Education of the Expanded Art Ideas Program at Artists Space in New York City. Most recently, she initiated, a collaborative artblog with artist Susan Silas. Chrysanne Stathacos lives and works in Toronto and New York City.
Visiting Artist Lecture
Ligorano/Reese is the collaboration of artists Nora Ligorano and Marshall Reese. Starting in the early 1980s, Ligorano/Reese's work is an ongoing investigation into the impact of technology on culture and the associations and meanings that the media brings to images, languages, and speech in politics. Their body of work is multidisciplinary, including limited edition multiples, videos, sculptures and installations which involve a range of unusual materials and industrial processes. Ligorano/Reese have shown widely throughout their career, and are included in the public collections of many institutions, not limited to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco; The New York Public Library, New York; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. The artists have also been awarded multiple grants including the National Endowment for the Arts in 1986 and 1989, and have received artist residencies at Stichting Steim in Holland in 2000 and the Eyebeam Center for Art & Technology in New York in 2009, among others. Ligorano/Reese live and work in Brooklyn, New York.
