Luke Seward is a visual artist & curator born and raised in Louisville, KY. He completed a BFA in photography at the Hite Art Institute before receiving an MFA in video and installation from the University of Connecticut, where he is currently the Visiting Director of Contemporary Art Galleries. His grandmother Chris, who was often covered in sequins from head to toe, set the tone for his interest in visual art. Her trailer home served as a portal, an influential kaleidoscope dedicated to DIY fashion, rare objects, and taboo acts. Seward is the co-founder of Sit Still Projects, a digital gallery space dedicated to the contemporary moving image through online exhibition programming and pop up screenings, and has recently exhibited video works at Plexus Projects, ODETTA, LMAK Gallery and Arthelix.
