Caroline Picard is a Chicago-based artist, writer and curator who explores the figure in relation to systems of power. While that interest began with various investigations about public and private space (via running an apartment gallery, The Green Lantern (2005-2010), and co-founding the bi-annual directory PHONEBOOK: an index of alternative exhibition spaces) it has since transformed into an on-going investigation of inter-species borders, how the human relates to its environment and what possibilities might emerge from upturning an anthropocentric world view. To further accent the porousness of borders and bounds, Picard’s projects manifest in a variety of cross-disciplinary mediums including painting, video, administrative practices, interviews with artists, works of fiction, comics, and critical essays. Her work has been discussed in American Book Review, Poets & Writers MagazineTime Out ChicagoNew CityArt21,Artforum.comhtml giant and Punk Planet. In 2005, she founded the Green Lantern Press and has since released 30 slow-media titles ranging from the first English translation of a 19th Century Polish classic, Kordian, debut novels by emerging writers, collections of arts administration essays and an Arctic newspaper from 1821. She writes regularly for Artslant and Art21 blogs, as well as Art ltd.Magazine. Recent short stories, essays and comics were published in Projecttile, The Coming Envelope no. 5 (Bookthug), Artifice Magazine, Anobium, Bicycle Review, MAKE Magazine and Everyday Genius; she has two contributions in vols 1 & 3 of The Graphic Canon (Seven Stories Press, 2012).  Other books include Psycho Dream Factory (Holon Press, 2011) and The Chronicles of Fortune (Holon Press, 2011). She is the Managing Editor of the Bad at Sports blog on contemporary art and culture, and runs The Paper Cave, an on-line bookstore dedicated to small press books.
