Zoe Crosher is an artist who lives and works in Los Angeles. She is primarily interested in the gaps between expectation and misremembering, perfectly suited to the historical conditions of photography, the documentary impulse and re-imagined narrative. Throughout her work she questions the notion of a singular history and single image of this imaginary, as well as the efficacy and problems of the archive, totality, and “truth”. With a particular conceptual aesthetic, playing with misinformation and mis-captioning and confusing and collapsing the real and the fake over and through time, she iteratively blurs reality, image, material and disappearance, often in relation to forgotten (mainly female) figures. The resulting ‘Imagiatic’ is an idea she coined to describe work related to image, imaginary, imagene, etc. but is not bound to the photographic. Realized primarily as various types of images and bronzed sculptures, as well as ‘stand-in collaborations’ with other artists and curators, she has most recently been conceptually mapping Los Angeles and the troubled notion of the “West”. She is currently working on a forthcoming book, The Good & The Glamorous: a Memoir of Misremembering, and preparing for a solo exhibition at The Aspen Museum for Winter 2017.

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. In 2012, she took part in MoMA’s New Photography show, and in 2011 she was a recipient of the prestigious “Art Here and Now Award,” awarded by the LACMA. From 2013-2015, Crosher collaborated with the Los Angeles Nomadic Division (LAND) on The Manifest Destiny Billboard Project, a series she initiated of artist-produced billboards and activations that unfolded all along the Interstate 10 Freeway, for which she received the 2015 Smithsonian Ingenuity of the Year Award. Numerous books have been published on her work, including one released in February 2016 by Hesse Press and a four-volume set by Aperture Ideas in 2011-2012. She is the founder and president of the Los Angeles branch of The Fainting Club and a fellow at the Royal Society of the Arts in London, was Associate/Assistant 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.

  2. 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.”
  3. FLORAL PATTERNS ~ AN ESSAY ABOUT FLOWERS AND ART (WITH A BLOOMING ADDENDUM.) by Andrew Berardini, Mousse Magazine (2016) “Without flowers, the reptiles, which had gotten along fine in a leafy, fruitless world, would probably still rule. Without flowers, we would not be.” — Michael Pollan, The Botany of Desire (2001)
  4. "Back to nature: How our latest midcentury modern design obsession reflects our age of environmental anxiety" by Kate Losse, Curbed.com (2016) "The connections between the resurgence of plants and our moment of environmental reckoning are palpable enough that they have become a subject for younger artists. Artist Zoe Crosher created a piece for the Los Angeles Nomadic Division in 2015 that depicts, in a series of billboards along the I-10 from Palm Springs to Los Angeles, a profusion of tropical foliage in various stages of health and decay."

  6. 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
  7. “Madames Electrics” at The Pit on Contemporary Art Daily (2016) "Dear Madames, Madames Electrics is a group exhibition and a book that came together through convoluted collusion, a polluted process of one thing leading to another. A show of lamps became a show of figures, and vice versa. Close and farflung friends came together with strangers, old art and new objects, electric and nonelectric, etc. In the end, light was shed on some hands and not others, some rights and some lefts. Something and some things were lost along the way, but what comes together is still something, it’s something else: Madames Electrics."
  8. Madames Electric at The Pit for Carla l.a. | Snap Reviews by Aaron Horst, July 16, 2016 (2016) "The lighting, a low, somewhat suburban glow provided in pieces by Julian Hoeber, Jamie Isenstein, and Interior Theater, adds an incantatory layer to Lutker and Adriana Lara’s Hands Modeling Air series as well as Zoe Crosher’s mid-’90s C-prints, the latter stewing together the hard-to-resist aesthetics of foregrounded color printing and hazily imaged chunks of the body."
  9. LA-LIKE: Transgressing the Pacific, by Kate Sutton - Bookforum (2016) In Los Angeles, a town of making or breaking it, a third option is just to disappear. The California dream of reinvention is propped up by vanishing acts both real and scripted. A thousand last breaths are drawn every day across Hollywood. Most are staged, which makes it all the more spectacular when a star’s real death follows cinematic convention …

  23. Zoe Crosher: Head Out on the Highway, Forget the Adventure, by Jordan Auckland - Flaunt Magazine (2015) "I'm looking for a way through something, not against something—or perhaps this very approach defines an iconoclast, and I am one even if I don't intend to be?"

'Both Sides of Sunset' tries, by Carolina Miranda - Los Angeles Times  (2015) This makes "Both Sides" all about the images — which makes it a wonderful book with which to revel in the wild architecture, the burned-out rocker types, the overpowering roadways, the singular street life, the sublime ridiculosity.

  176. Openness Is the Mother of Invention (2015) Crosher added nuance to the idea by noting that it’s not that there are no hierarchies here—the politics of the art world, for instance, are “very bizarre, and exist in all sorts of irrational ways that all have to do with the market.” It’s that even in hierarchical fields, often there are ways to work around the established order, she said. The project she was recognized for, which commissioned artists to design works for billboards across the country, was sponsored by LAND (Los Angeles Nomadic Division), an arts nonprofit organization that she describes as a “really radical outlet.”
