Marie Lorenz explores urban waterways, collecting and documenting found objects and recording them in different ways, by printing, casting, or making videos. Her ongoing project The Tide and Current Taxi is a rowboat water taxi in the New York Harbor, operated by the artist to coincide with strong tidal currents. She received a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA from Yale. Lorenz has received grants from Artists Space, the Harpo Foundation, and the Alice Kimball English Travel Fellowship. In 2008, she was awarded the Joseph H. Hazen Rome Prize for the American Academy in Rome. Her work has been shown nationally and internationally, from High Desert Test Sites in Joshua Tree, California, to MoMA PS1, New York. She has completed solo projects at Ikon Gallery in Birmingham, England, Locust Projects in Miami, and at Jack Hanley Gallery, New York.
