Lisa Lapinski: Miss Swiss is artist Lisa Lapinski’s most comprehensive monograph to date. Lisa Lapinski is an artist living and working in Houston, Texas. She received her BA from University of California, San Diego, an MFA from Art Center College of Design and is currently an Associate Professor of Art at Rice University. She was the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2004.
Published on the occasion of Drunk Hawking, her 2020 mid-career survey at Visual Arts Center (VAC) at the University of Texas at Austin, the book will include never before published images of Lapinski’s exhibitions and artworks from 2000 to the present. Miss Swiss features contributions by Bruce Hainley, Graham Bader, Kyle Dancewicz, Sabrina Tarasoff, and MacKenzie Stevens, as well as a conversation between the artist and linguist Viola Schmitt. Designed by artists Laura Owens and Asha Schechter of Apogee Graphics, the book is an inventive collaboration between Owens, Schechter, and Lapinski, providing new insights into Lapinski’s influential and idiosyncratic practice.
