Elizabeth Cline

Elizabeth Cline is an artist and curator. She works as a Curatorial Associate at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles where she produces artist’s projects, performances and residencies in the Public Engagement program. This program, which she has shaped and continues to develop, seeks to create a new kind of interactive museum: an artist-driven visitor engagement program that encourages contact among visitors, artists, and Museum staff, and activates spaces in imaginative ways. Cline has taught and lectured about contemporary art practices at Art Center, Pasadena; Columbia College, Chicago; Portland Art Museum; and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her first opera, Tragedy on the Sea Nymph, starring an all-dog cast, premiered at Machine Project and traveled to the Walker Art Center. Her follow-up opera slated for 12.21.12 tells the tale of the ancient Mayans and the next age of human consciousness. She lives in Los Angeles with her boyfriend Lewis, a record producer who also plays in the group “Fool’s Gold,” and their French bulldog Simone.
