American, Born 1957

Annette Lemieux completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the Hartford Art School in West Hartford, Connecticut in 1980. She has since lectured and served as a visiting artist at institutions such as the School of Visual Arts in New York City, New York University, the Rhode Island School of Design, Harvard University, and Yale University.

Lemieux appropriates images and photographs and recontextualizes them in order to strengthen their original, and usually political, meanings. Left Right Left Right, the work she created at Island Press, is now part of the permanent collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art. Other works by Lemieux are held in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Among many awards, Lemieux has received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Pollock-Krasner Foundation. She was included in the 1987 Whitney Biennial and the 1990 Venice Biennale.
