Emilie Luckett
Art History

Emilie Luckett is a second-year MA candidate interested in socially engaged art practices and how they can be used to confront current socio-political issues. Her undergraduate work at the Metropolitan State University of Denver explored the prevalence of collectivity in activist artwork, specifically in how art collectives address the climate crisis and its disproportional effects. Currently, Emilie is working towards specializations in contemporary art and ecology, socially engaged art practices, decolonial theory, and critical museology. In addition, she is continuing to explore how artistic collaboration can challenge climate breakdown and its related problems. Emilie is excited to work with and be supported by the Mellon Sawyer Seminar, Deep Horizons: Making Visible an Unseen Spectrum of Ecological Casualties & Prospects through the Sawyer Seminar on the Comparative Study of Cultures grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
