About the artist
Anne Collier combines still-life photography with techniques of appropriation in meticulously arranged compositions. Photographed against flat, plain surfaces in her studio, found objects—record covers, magazine pages, appointment calendars, and postcards—reveal Collier’s interest in the mass media and popular culture of the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. Informed as much by West Coast Conceptual art as by commercial product photography and advertising, her deadpan pictures (which are often humorous and subtly self-reflexive) present a set of formal and psychological associations that frame recurrent tensions around power and gender.
Anne Collier (b. 1970 in Los Angeles) lives and works in New York. Recent solo exhibitions include: The Modern Institute (2017); ‘Anne Collier: Women with Cameras (Self Portrait)’; Minneapolis Institute of Art (2017); ‘Women with Cameras’, Rat Hole Gallery, Tokyo (2016); Galerie Neu, Berlin (2016); Anton Kern Gallery, New York (2016); Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (2014); Aspen Art Museum, Aspen (2015); Aspen Art Museum, Aspen, Touring: CCS Bard Hessel Museum of Art, Annandale-on-Hudson, (2014); Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (2014); Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto (2015 - 2016); High Line Art billboard commission, New York, US (2012); Nottingham Contemporary, Nottingham, UK (2011) and Bonner Kunstverein, Bonn, DE (2008).
