Lindsey Schulz was born and raised in Northern California and moved to Los Angeles in 2007 to attend Otis College of Art and Design. She received her BFA in 2011, and her MFA from the California Institute of the Arts in 2015.
Schulz is a conceptual artist primarily working in installation, sculpture, drawing and video. Her practice is about the mapping of personal and cultural histories through rigorous methods of production. She has chosen to place herself between chaos and control, inserting one into the other. Schulz's intimate experiences are exhumed in attempt to order information and frame meaning; often employing a scientific approach to break down complicated emotional states into a series of mathematical decisions informed by archival and antiquated impulses. Her work focuses on labor, repetition and death through preservation to discuss the ways in which we perform for each other.
