Bryan Markovitz

Bryan Markovitz is a researcher, designer and educator making exhibitions and engagement programs for museums, institutions, and companies.

I work as a strategist at Luci Creative in Chicago, and I am a PhD candidate at Brown University. My academic research merges the disciplines of museum studies, performance theory, anthropology, and the history of science.

I am especially interested in how technology is changing the preservation and display of material culture. This includes everything from the reproduction of art and artifacts by conservation scientists, to the resurrection of extinct flora and fauna by synthetic biologists.

I hold two MA degrees from Brown in Cultural Anthropology and Performance Studies, an MFA in Studio Art from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and a BA in Theatre from Trinity University.

As an artist, I co-founded Liminal, a Portland, Oregon based performance and media ensemble. For a decade, I served as Liminal's artistic director and received three Portland Drama Critics Circle Awards for best direction and design of Liminal’s interactive media and theatre projects.
