Lauren Bergman (@lauren_bergman)
Lauren Bergman grew up in Washington, D.C., before relocating to Manhattan to study painting and design at Parson’s School of Design and The Art Students League in New York. Bergman's work probes a loss of cultural optimism and the ongoing irresolution of such post-feminist issues as sexuality versus intellectualism, passivity and acquiescence versus ambition. The work courts irony and the inner narratives are playful, yet confront the conflicting expectations of contemporary culture and the intricately complex ways in which we form our identities.
Bergman currently lives in Manhattan and her studio is at MANA Contemporary in Jersey City, NJ.
