Lorenzo Triburgo is a Brooklyn-based, multimedia artist employing performance, photography, video, and audio to cast a critical lens on notions of the "natural," the construct of gender, and the politics of queer representation.
Using an understated yet radical approach that includes portraiture, landscape, and studio practice, Lorenzo reclaims power for LGBTQ communities and others traditionally ignored by media and popular culture or conquered by an outsider's gaze.
Lorenzo has artworks in the permanent collection of the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, IL, and the Portland Art Museum in Portland, OR. Lorenzo has been featured in Slate, Huffington Post, HuffPo-Live, and the Transgender Studies Reader 2 edited by Susan Stryker and Aren Aizura (Routledge).
Lorenzo has exhibited and lectured in cities throughout the U.S., Europe, and Asia, including Bruce Silverstein, NYC; Photoforum Pasquart, Biel, Switzerland; Kunst und Kulturhaus, Berne, Switzerland; the Dutch Trading Post, Nagasaki, Japan; The Henry Art Gallery, Seattle, WA; Des Moines Art Center, Des Moines, IA; the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, IL; Magazzini del Sale di Palazzo Pubblico, Siena, Italy; and Oude Kerk, Amsterdam, the Netherlands as the first place winner of the international Pride Photo Award.
Lorenzo is a Camera Club of NY Baxter Street Workspace Residency recipient in 2019 for their project Monumental Resistance: Stonewall and current project Becoming Queer (working title), collaborations with their partner Sarah Van Dyck.
Lorenzo holds a BA from New York University in Photography and Gender Studies and an MFA in Photography and Related Media from the School of Visual Arts. Lorenzo teaches Critical Theory, Art, and Gender Studies for Oregon State University's online campus and in the continuing education program at the School of Visual Arts.
