Emily Lanctot’s work explores themes of identity, the archive, the collection, memory, and institutional politics. Lanctot’s work moves between media to examine cultural rituals and everyday practices.
Lanctot received a B.F.A. in Drawing and Painting from Northern Michigan University in 2008, and an M.F.A. in Interdisciplinary Studio Arts from Vermont College of Fine Arts in 2010.
Lanctot lives and works in Marquette, Michigan, where she is the Curator of Collections and Outreach at NMU's DeVos Art Museum, and teaches in the Foundations program at the School of Art and Design.
