Abigail Lucien (b. 1992, Dallas, TX) is an interdisciplinary artist raised in Florida and Cap-Haitian, Haiti. She holds a BFA from Florida State University and an MFA in Printmaking at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Lucien’s work foregrounds her dual Haitian-American nationality by looking at ways cultural identities and inherited colonial structures transmit to the body and psyche through commercial mass media. Her work has exhibited at museums and institutions such as MoMA PS1 in Long Island City, New York, Atlanta Contemporary in Atlanta, GA., Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Museum of Fine Arts in Tallahassee, FL, Woman Made Gallery in Chicago, IL, and The Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia, PA.
Lucien is currently based in Richmond, VA where she teaches in the Sculpture + Extended Media department at Virginia Commonwealth University.
