Kristi Lippire, M.F.A.

Professor of Fine Art

Kristi Lippire lives and works in Los Angeles and is currently part of the traveling exhibition Alexander Calder and Contemporary Art: Form, Balance, Joy that opened at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and is traveling to Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, Orange County Museum of Art and Nasher Museum at Duke University.

Kristi Lippire makes large-scale objects that reference the visual culture that surrounds her daily. The sculptures are explorations in scale and material, isolating moments in everyday life that are engaging in a manner that emphasizes the humor of a complex social culture.

Lippire has recently installed an outdoor sculpture work for the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena, which will be a public art for the next year.

Lippire has also participated in and organized multiple guerilla art projects in Los Angeles and Mexico. For the last three summers, has been involved in a collaborative project with her husband, curating backyard screenings featuring new video works and performance art in their El Sereno backyard.

Kristi Lippire has exhibited with D.E.N. Contemporary Art and Ace Gallery, with recent group exhibitions at the Torrance Art Museum, Glendale Community College, and The Riverside Art Museum.
