Maritime-born artist, Lisa Lipton is a multidisciplinary visual artist, musician and director who received her B.F.A. from NSCAD University and M.F.A. from the University of Windsor. Her projects explore the potential for crossing genres of film, mixed media installation, performance, theatre and music. Her visions are reflective of an interest in directorial and curatorial practices, collaboration and social interaction, as well as working within non-traditional contexts in order to explore the boundaries of performance and filmic production. She has exhibited her work on both a national and international level, and most recently served as the Shortlist representative for the Maritime Provinces within the Sobey Art Awards (2015). She currently released a multi-disciplinary project and her first feature film – THE IMPOSSIBLE BLUE ROSE, at the Southern Alberta Art Gallery in Lethbridge, AB, and in association with MS:T Performative Arts Festival.
