Rowan Renee (they/them) (b. 1985, West Palm Beach, Florida) is a genderqueer artist currently working in Brooklyn, NY. Their work explores how queer identity is mediated by the law. Through image, text, and installation, they address the impact of intergenerational trauma and gender-based violence within the criminal justice system. Their solo exhibitions include Z at Pioneer Works (2015) and Bodies of Wood at the Aperture Foundation (2017). They have received awards from the Aaron Siskind Foundation, the Harpo Foundation, and the Red Bull House of Art in Detroit. Between the Lines, their current project with We, Women Photo, is a collaboration with LGBTQ+ incarcerated artists in Florida. Their installation, No Spirit For Me (2019), is included in the critically acclaimed exhibition Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration, curated by Dr. Nicole R. Fleetwood, at MoMA PS1.
