Part of a generation of artists who developed their practices around what was then called “Picture Theory ” Annette Lemieux has gone on to become a trailblazer in the field of post-Conceptualist painting assemblage and photomontage drawing influences from Minimalism and Pop art and often employing as her source material media images from the 20th century. Lemieux’s deft use of readymade imagery in her practice is always tied to contemporary life its humanity and its indignations its politics and its ever-changing visual codes and thus her work is always open to new meaning on both a personal and collective level.

Born in 1957 in Norfolk Virginia Lemieux studied at the Hartford Art School University of Hartford where she received her BFA in 1980. In addition to her recent solo exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston Lemieux’s numerous solo shows include the Matrix Gallery Wadsworth Atheneum Hartford; the New Museum of Contemporary Art New York; the Stichting De Appel Amsterdam; Castello Di Rivoli Museo d’Arts Contemporanea Turin Italy; Kaiser Wilhelm Museum Haus Esters Krefeld Germany; Museo de Arte Carrillo Gill Mexico City; and the Davis Museum and Cultural Center at Wellesley College.
