    Marc Lepson

    Profile

    Marc Lepson has been part of the downtown art scene in New York City since the early 1990’s, beginning with his work as artist and Master Printer at the Lower East Side Printshop. His work first came to national attention as part of the activist group, ad hoc artists, staging public performances (Our Grief is not a Cry for War) in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks in Lower Manhattan.

    In the decade that followed, his strident political prints and installations were shown at Miyako Yoshinaga gallery NY and showcased at The Brooklyn Museum. He has exhibited internationally in Vienna, Berlin, Stockholm, and Reykjavic. His current practice centers around large scale paintings and prints that investigate the social constructions of gender, race, and violence that form the bedrock of American society.
