Lee Pivnik (b. 1995) is a Miami-based artist who graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Sculpture with a concentration in Nature-Culture-Sustainability Studies. Working predominantly in sculpture, video and social practice he aims to use his research-based practice to critique human exceptionalism and amplify a chorus of more equitable futures.

Since 2017 he has run the Institute of Queer Ecology, which broadens discussions around environmental issues by synthesizing queer and feminist theory and decolonial thinking into exhibitions and publications. In his artwork and curatorial projects, he attempts to help produce the world he wants to see emerge from this ripe socio-environmental crisis.
