Luciana Abait was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and is currently based in Los
Angeles where she is a resident artist of 18TH Street Arts Center in Santa Monica.
Her photo-based two- and three-dimensional works deal with climate change and
environmental fragility, and their impacts on immigration in particular.
Abait’s artworks have been shown widely in the United States, Europe, Latin America and Asia in solo shows in galleries,
museums and international art fairs. Selected exhibitions include A Letter to The Future at Los Angeles International
Airport and Sur Biennial in California; Flow, Blue at Rockford College Art Museum and Luciana Abait at Jean Albano Gallery in Illinois; Nest at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania; and ARCO in Spain. She has completed numerous corporate and public art commissions, among them “Vistas”, a 24 feet mural commissioned by Miami- Dade Art in Public Places; “Golf Windows” commissioned by Florida Public State Buildings Program and “Hong Kong Windows”, commissioned by Swire Properties in Hong Kong. Some other diverse public art projects include her being part of The Billboard Creative (where her artwork was displayed on a billboard in Hollywood), Sur Biennial, Rio Hondo College and LUMINEX in Los Angeles, where her 34 foot high immersive video installation “Agua” was projected onto a historic cultural monument: the Petroleum Securities Building in Downtown Los Angeles.
Abait’s works are held in private, public and corporate collections from the United States, Europe, Latin America and East Asia.
Among these collections are: The Related Group, Florida State University, Permanent Art Collection of Neiman Marcus, Miami-Dade Public Library System, Four Seasons, and University of Miami in Florida; King and Spalding in Texas; Lehigh University Museum and West Collection in Pennsylvania; Sprint Corporation in Missouri; Flint Institute of Arts in Michigan; the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System in Washington D.C., and Freshfields and Swire Properties in Hong Kong.
