Lilla LoCurto and Bill Outcault

In 1991, Bill and I formed a collaborative team and received a development grant in 1993 for their first project, Self Portrait, from Art Matters Inc. That year our work was also included in an exhibition and a publication, Corporal Politics, Beacon Press and MIT List Visual Arts Center. In 1993 we were selected to do a solo show at Newport Harbor Art Museum, CA for New California Art and in 1994, we were invited to be visiting artists at Carpenter Center, Harvard University where we also produced solo exhibitions, Sharp Appetites and Mandala. That year we also completed an interactive multi-media installation, Self Portrait, that traveled throughout the US and traveled to Europe where it was shown at the Fundaciò Joan Miro in Barcelona, Spain. We received development grants in 1997 from the Council for the Arts at MIT and the Lyman Allyn Art Museum in New London, CT to produce a body of work and publish a catalogue for an exhibition that subsequently traveled to eight institutions and museums. selfportait.map, University of Washington Press, was published to accompany the exhibition. In 2001 we were awarded a one-year residency at Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore where we worked in conjunction with Johns Hopkins Center for Imaging Science, creating animations concerning mapping the figure and three-dimensional scanning. In the same year we were also panelists and presenters at the Association of American Geographers Conference in New York as well as visiting artists at Colorado State University in Fort Collins. In 2002 we participated in the symposium, Cartography in the Age of Digital Media at Yale University School of Architecture and contributed a chapter in the book, Mapping In The Age of Digital Media, Wiley-Academy in June of that year. We held a residency at Wexner Center for the Arts, Art and Technology in Columbus Ohio in 2003 producing a body of work on the topology of the human figure.

Ross Museum at Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, OH invited us for a residency to collaborate with Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in conjunction with our work with the figure and 3d scanning. We were selected as the Artists’ Project for Art Journal in the spring of 2006 including an essay, Self-Portraits for a New Millennium by Helaine Posner.

In 2010, we began another residency with the Wexner Center and the Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design at Ohio State University, producing a three-channel animation titled flaneur. The piece will be shown in Berlin, Germany at A trans Pavilion, a date still not determined. In 2013, based on a proposed animated video about mental illness and issues of perception, both psychological and visual we received a Guggenheim Fellowship.
