A professor at SUNY-Purchase's School of Art and Design, Warren Lehrer is an internationally recognized pioneer in the fields of visual literature and design authorship. He describes his artists' books and events with his wife, the performance artist Judith Sloan, as an exploration of "the vagaries and luminescence of character, the relationships between social structures and the individual, and the pathos and absurdity of life." His work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, L.A. County Art Museum, The Getty Museum, Georges Pompidou Centre, and Tate Gallery, and he has received awards from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Ford Foundation.
