Born in Upland, California, 1976.

A graduate in the MFA program at Calarts in 2003, Matt Lucero has exhibited in Southern California and New York at spaces such as Harris-Lieberman, New York, Lombard Freid, New York, LA><ART, Los Angeles and the Orange County Museum of Art for the 2008 California Biennial. His work utilizes performance, installation and interventions that use commercial marketing and design strategies to open a debate over consumer, public vs. private issues of space as well as display and representation. His most recent series of sculptural public works introduce family history and notions of temporality to examine the complexity and fluidity of regional identity and architecture. His performance and interventions have been seen at Target, Wal-Mart, The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Pasadena Art Center and The Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena among other spaces.
