Zoe Crosher

Crosher was born in 1975 and currently lives and works in Los Angeles. Through her dynamic studio practice, Crosher uses photography as the starting point to examine the mapping of the imaginary/fiction of documentary, pursuing an image practice that is conceptual in orientation yet rooted in vernacular representation. In addition to her photography, she actively makes books centered on her practice: Out the Window (LAX), examines space and transience around the Los Angeles airport, and a recently published four-volume book series created with Aperture Ideas examines her most recent work, The Michelle duBois Project . Crosher has served as a visiting professor at UCLA and Art Center College of Design, and was associate editor of the journal Afterall after receiving her MFA from CalArts. The artist was awarded the prestigious Art Here and Now Award by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and is a recipient of the Rauschenberg Award in collaboration with The Los Angeles Nomadic Division (LAND) in 2011. In addition to numerous exhibitions throughout the United States, her work was included in the 2010 California Biennial and she was one of only five artists featured in MoMA's 2012 New Photography exhibition. The artist is represented by Perry Rubenstein Gallery.
