Atlantic - Lisa Lipton
The Sobey Art Award is Canada's pre-eminent award for contemporary Canadian art. The annual prize is given to an artist under age 40, who has exhibited in a public or commercial art gallery within 18 months of being nominated.
Lisa Lipton (aka FRANKIE) is a multidisciplinary visual artist, musician and director who received her BFA from NSCAD University and MFA from the University of Windsor. Her installations exemplify a diversity of interest within the arts combining sculpture, video, costume, paint with performance that involves dance and music. Her visions are reflective of an interest in directional and curatorial practices, collaboration and social interaction, as well as working within non-traditional contexts in order to explore the boundaries of production and filmic production. She has currently completed a major tour throughout North America with her latest drumming project - BLAST BEATS: Phrase Three, culminating in a multi-media exhibition and first feature film - THE IMPOSSIBLE BLUE ROSE. She has exhibited her work on both national and international level, and most recently served as one of the Longlist representatives for the Atlantic Provinces within the Sobey Art Awards (2012 & 2013).
