Biography

Lucy McRae leads a multi-disciplinary, art-research studio investigating the impact future technologies have on human evolution. In parallel to her gallery and museum-focused art practice, she thrives as a director, a maker, in the writer’s room and in the lab. Boldly staring down the status quo, Lucy pioneers a new story for how future technologies will fundamentally alter human intimacy, reproduction, spirituality, biology, and health— shining light on the ethical implications of genetic engineering. Her prophetic aesthetic is flung far from archetypal tropes, creating nostalgia for a future about to happen. Lucy’s work diversifies the predictive voices we traditionally call ‘science’ and ‘technology’, through designing hypothetical worlds that use speculation as a tool to provoke an exploration of ideologies and ethics about who we are, and where we are headed.

Based in Los Angeles, Lucy is a visiting professor at architecture school SCI_Arc, is a World Economic Forum, Young Global Leader and TED Fellow, and is currently world building and futurist consultant to a number of Hollywood productions with multiple Oscar-winning directors and producers.McRae has exhibited at Venice Biennale, Centre Pompidou, Science Museum London, Milan Triennale, National Gallery Victoria, Powerhouse Museum, SCI_ARC, MAXXI, NXT Museum, Het Nieuwe Instituut, Design Museum Holon and currently Honor Fraser Gallery. Collaborations and commissions include MIT, Ars Electronica, NASA, Aesop, Adidas, Nike, Adobe, Intel, Kia, Dezeen, Unilever, Wired Health and BMW Mini. Keynotes at TED, Royal Albert Hall, Cannes Lion and Tribeca Film Festival.
