Alex Lukas was born in Boston and raised in Cambridge, Massachusetts. His interdisciplinary practice explores the intersections of place, human activity, and history; seeking to aggrandize the everyday, question historical narratives, and archive the individual. His fieldwork, research, and production reframes the monumental and the incidental through intricate print publications, sculpture, drawing, painting, video, and audio collage.
Lukas received his MFA from Carnegie Mellon University and his BFA from Rhode Island School of Design. His work has been exhibited widely including at Guerrero Gallery (San Francisco), Zevitas Marcus (Los Angeles), The Luminary (St. Louis), Miller ICA (Pittsburgh), UPFOR Gallery (Portland), and Center for Maine Contemporary Art (Rockland), among many others. His work is included in the collections of the Kadist Foundation, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the MIT List Visual Arts Center’s Student Loan Art Collection, the New York Public Library, and the Library of the Museum of Modern Art. He has participated in residencies at Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, The Fountainhead Residency, The Center for Land Use Interpretation, and the John Michael Kohler Arts Center.
