The 2024 Tri State Annual Conference will take place in the newly renovated 
Simons Center for the Arts at the College of Charleston in Charleston South Carolina

Conference dates are Thursday, October 17th - Sunday, Oct. 20, 2024.


Gracelee’s work deals with relationships between food, the body, and technology. It is born in the transfigurative space between physical and digital reality, exploring the ways in which bodies are both gendered and metaphorically fragmented in terms of capitalist-driven material desires, physical sustenance, and the digital spaces we inhabit. 

Gracelee (they/she) has attended twenty residencies in the US and abroad and opened her second solo show in New York at Postmasters in June 2022 with a glowing review by Roberta Smith in the New York Times. They are currently the Head of Sculpture Area at the University at Albany, SUNY. 

Recent exhibitions include Peter Gaugy (Vienna, Austria), PRIOR Art Space (Barcelona, Spain), Patrick Mikhail (Montreal, CA), Kavi Gupta (Chicago, IL), CHART  (New York, NY), and more. They have installed large-scale outdoor sculptures at the Upstate Immersive (Poughkeepsie, NY), Wave Hill (Bronx, NY), Museum of Museums (Seattle, WA), Franconia Sculpture Park (Shafer, MN), Mary Sky (Hancock, VT), and others.  

In 2017 they returned from 15 months as a Visiting Professor in the Multidisciplinary Department of Art at Chiang Mai University and assistant to artist Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook on a Luce Scholars Fellowship. They are a member of the collective MATERIAL GIRLS, a recipient of the 2024 Dr. Dr. Nuala McGann Drescher Leave, a 2021-22 Individual Artist DEC Grant, a 2019 Jerome Fellow at Franconia Sculpture Park, a 2016-17 Luce Scholars Fellow, and a recipient of the 2015 UMLAUF Prize. Press for their work includes The New York Times, The New Yorker, ArtNet, Hyperallergic, Artspace, The Creative Independent, and MAAKE Magazine, among others. They are an enthusiastic dancer, a lifelong horse person, and a passionate gardener.
