Liz Cohen is one of the hottest young artists to emerge on the contemporary art scene in the past year. A Detroit-based photographer and installation artist, Cohen's conceptual practice challenges traditional stereotypes of gender roles and female beauty. Equally assured behind the wheel of her Trabantimino, popping the back wheels, and lying sprawled out in a bikini on the floor of the old East German factory where the original Trabant was constructed, her work speaks to both car lovers and fetishists alike all the while sending an empowering message for women everywhere.

Liz Cohen has exhibited nationally and internationally at venues such as Salon 94 in New York, Galerie Laurent Godin in Paris, David Klein Gallery in Detroit, the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. She has received awards and fellowships from the Creative Capital Foundation, Artadia: The Fund for Art and Dialogue, the MacDowell Colony and Akademie Schoss Solitude. Currently, she is the Artist-in-Residence and Head of Photography at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Detroit.
