The Visiting Artists and Scholars Lecture Series (VAS) provides a public forum for engagement and dialogue with major figures in international contemporary art and culture. Through lectures, screenings, and performances, the series creates intimate connections between SFAI, artists, and the public.
Zoe Crosher’s works collapse and confuse the real and the fake, blurring reality, fantasy and expectation. Through “The Imagiatic” she seeks disconnects between historical fact and constructed representation to question truth in documentary and the image, and the efficacy of the archive. Crosher participated in MoMA’s New Photography show in 2012, and has received Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s prestigious Art Here and Now Award, a Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Artistic Innovation and Collaboration Award, and the 2015 Smithsonian Ingenuity of the Year Award with Shamim M. Momim.
Named a “prominent Los Angeles artist” by The New York Times, Crosher’s work is included in various international, private, and museum collections including The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Palm Springs Museum, and the Pérez Art Museum Miami. Numerous books have been published on her work, including one recently released (and sold out) by Hess Press and a four-volume set by Aperture Ideas. She is the founder and president of the Los Angeles branch of The Fainting Club, was Associate Editor of the journal Afterall, and has taught at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, CA. Crosher received an MFA from California Institute of Arts (CalArts) in 2001.
