Bio: Donald Lambert
Don Lambert is an artist and educator based in Miami, FL. He is the current Sculpture Department head at New World School of the Arts in Miami, FL. Over the past two decades, Lambert has developed a creative practice that includes object-making, performance, and social engagement; labor is central to his work. Lambert investigates migratory and fluid aspects of identity through a consideration of materials, history, and place. As part of the built environment, landscape remains the primary locus of his research. In addition to local projects, Lambert continues to work on long-term projects with indigenous populations in the Peruvian Amazon.
