Collaborators Barbara Ciurej and Lindsay Lochman weave history, myth and popular culture into photographic narratives that investigate human experience and explore the physical and social landscape. Their collaboration is an ongoing conversation that began in the late 1970s when the two artists met as students at the Institute of Design at Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, Illinois. They share a studio in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where they continue to develop projects that probe interdependent and mutable narratives.
Ciurej and Lochman exhibit widely nationally and internationally with work currently on view at the Museum of Wisconsin Art in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago. Collaborative artwork is in private and public collections including the Art Institute of Chicago, Walker Art Center, Museum of Contemporary Photography, Milwaukee Art Museum, Worcester Art Museum and the Yale Center for British Art.
