Lisa Z. Morgan

Lisa Z. Morgan is a British artist, designer and writer now based in Providence. She is the Co-Founder of STRUMPET & PINK and of The Lavender Hinge. She writes, plots and schemes with The Laboratory Arts Collective and has been a contributor to SHOWstudio.

Morgan’s work inhabits a space where art, semiotics, design and fashion intersect. Through a variety of mediums, ranging from knickers, to perfume, sewn paintings, mixed media installations, performances and the written word, Morgan addresses the instinctual, emotional and intellectual nature of desire and the desire impulse

In 2011 Morgan was commissioned to curate and author the book Design Behind Desire, which has become a compendium for desirable objects and has been exhibited at the Triennale Design Museum in Milan as an object of desire within itself.

As an artist Morgan has exhibited and performed internationally. Her work, both individual and collaborative, has been featured in magazines and newspapers such as W, Elle, Vogue, LOVE, Tatler, Interview, The New York Times, The LA Times, The Financial Times, The Guardian, Wallpaper, The Telegraph, AnOther, Purple Magazine, S Magazine and The Huffington Post among others. Morgan’s work has been reviewed in seven books and is included in several private collections as well as the RISD Museum and Victoria & Albert Museum in London.

Morgan holds a Master of Arts from the Royal College of Art in London where she also initiated a PhD. Since her inquiry focused on the development of a philosophy of the sensuous through the investigation of the color pink, she took on the pseudonym The Pink Investigator.
