Colby Bird Bio
About The Artist
Colby Bird's prints, photographs, and assemblage sculptures appropriate images and objects that cut across racial, gender, and class lines. By combining the loaded quotidian with sly, art-historical references to Minimalism and Abstract Expressionism, Bird bridges the gap between "high" and "low" culture.
In 2009, Bird had a solo exhibition at CRG Gallery in New York, NY, and in 2010, he was included in a group exhibition at P.S.1 MoMA. In 2011, his photography was included in The Anxiety of Photography at the Aspen Art Museum, CO.
