Lola Kramer was born in Los Angeles, grew up between Southern California and Kent, England, and now lives in New York. She was first introduced to art by her father, who was the bassist in the rock band Iron Butterfly and also doubled as an aerospace engineer. He worked on projects for the Department of Defense and on projects in the early computer industry with fractal compression, facial-recognition systems and communications, which is why she’s fascinated with art’s relationship to technology. When asked about her priorities as a curator, Kramer doesn’t flinch before launching into her expectations of art: “It isn’t about telling, it’s about showing. My priority is to put art in relation to the flow of life and to pose a question, ‘What if?’ When you do this, there is quite a bit there for people to use, to be able to find their place in the world.”
