Lee Pivnik (b. 1995) is a Miami-based artist, working predominantly in sculpture, video and social practice. He graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Sculpture and a concentration in Nature-Culture-Sustainability Studies. In his artwork and curatorial projects, he attempts to help produce a more regenerative, biophilic, ecozoic world. Well aware of the scale of such an endeavor, Pivnik considered his practice as an opportunity for collaboration.
In 2017 he started the Institute of Queer Ecology, a collaborative organism which broadens discussions around environmental issues by synthesizing queer and feminist theory and decolonial thinking into exhibitions and publications.
