Lisa Solomon

July 7 – August 7

Fisch Haus is excited to welcome Bay Area artist Lisa Solomon to Wichita, in a joint artist-in-residency program with the Ulrich Museum of Art.  Lisa will be living and working at the Fisch Haus, and participating in the Ulrich’s Underground Artist in Residence project. 

Solomon is interested in the way that work is categorized according to gender, and how that categorization affects the way the work is received.  For example, she will mount an installation of 1,000 handmade doilies at the Ulrich—doily making is often seen as a feminine pursuit (an activity confined to the domestic sphere), but Solomon’s installation monumentalizes the doily and equates its making with fine art practices. 

While in Wichita, the artist will also crowdsource elements to create a new installation especially for the Ulrich.


All events are free and open to the public, and located at the Ulrich Museum, unless otherwise noted.
