Lissa Rivera

Photographer and Curator

Lissa Rivera is a photographer and curator based in Brooklyn, NY whose work has received multiple grants and honors and been exhibited internationally. Rivera received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts, where she became fascinated with the social history of photography and the evolution of identity, sexuality and gender in relationship to material culture. ‘Beautiful Boy,’ Rivera’s latest project, takes her interest in photography’s connection with identity to a personal level, focusing on her domestic partner as muse, BJ Lillis. She also curated the exhibition ‘Canon,’ by artists Juan Jose Barboza-Gubo and Andrew Mroczek, the first bilingual exhibition to be shown at the Museum of Sex. “Canon is a call to action against the relentless violence the LGBTQ population faces throughout Peruvian culture.”
