Artists go large on Los Angeles’s billboards (2017)“It’s a wonderful medium,” says Shamim Momin, the co-founder of Land (Los Angeles Nomadic Division), who co-organised with the artist Zoe Crosher the Manifest Destiny Billboard Project from 2013 to 2015, spanning ten cities along Interstate 10 from Florida to California. “It’s an extraordinary way to have millions of people see a project, even if they are not consciously wanting to see it. It’s an insertion of the visual into everyday experience.”
Zoe Crosher: The New LA-LIKE by Chelsea Withers, The Magazine (2016)“But instead of lurid tabloid photos, Crosher is channeling cool Ed Ruscha. Her photographs catalogue places simply and straightforwardly; you wouldn’t even know what you were looking at if it weren’t for Crosher’s titles, which function like commemorative plaques.” - Chelsea Withers, The Magazine
