Lissa Rivera, curator Museum of Sex, NY
Lissa Rivera is a photographer and curator based in NYC. Since 2016, Lissa Rivera has curated and produced exhibitions at the Museum of Sex, with a focus on contemporary art. As a curator, Rivera strives to include traditionally underrepresented voices regardless of formal education or exhibition history. Recent shows have been widely covered and celebrated in the media. Rivera has worked with collaborators including Marina Garcia-Vasquez of VICE Media and Frank Maresca of Ricco/Maresca Gallery.
Rivera received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts, where she became fascinated with the evolution of identity, sexuality and gender in relationship to material culture. ‘Beautiful Boy,’ Rivera’s latest project, takes her interest in photography’s connection with identity to a personal level, focusing on her domestic partner as muse. ‘Beautiful Boy’ received breakthrough success, with coverage in many publications, including the New York Times, Artforum and Harper’s Bazaar. Selected honors include the Magnum Photography Award for Portraiture.
