Lucia Monge is a Peruvian artist with a background in education and art + science collaboration. Her work explores the way humans position ourselves within the natural world and relate to other living beings, especially plants. For the past nine years she has organized Plantón Móvil, a yearly “walking forest” performance that leads to the creation of public green areas. This year it was organized in collaboration with the Queens Museum, NYC Parks, John Bowne Highschool and local community groups and supported by Citywide Nursery and the Queens Botanical Garden.

Monge has exhibited in South America, Europe, and the United States as well as at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP20). She has presented her work in conferences including Performance Climates at Melbourne University and Open Engagement at the Queens Museum and has been included in publications such as Global Performance Issues and MoMA’s Uneven Growth as well as in the popular press.

Lucia holds a BFA from Universidad Católica del Peru and a MFA from Rhode Island School of Design. She taught Design in Experimental + Foundation Studies at RISD and Studio Foundation and 3D Foundations in the Visual Arts Department at Brown University. She has recently relocated to Portland, Oregon.
