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. Crosher has taught at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, CA. She received an MFA from California Institute of Arts (CalArts) in 2001.
Featuring the work of famed tabloid photographer Weegee and contemporary artists Zoe Crosher and Jessamyn Lovell, Two Truths & A Lie explores the shift in photography’s role as the arbiter of fact. Wherein lies the truth of an image? In its representation? In its interpretation? Can a photograph be both documentary and fiction?
Two Truths & A Lie is on view at the Jacki Headley University Art Gallery through September 30, 2017. The exhibition is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
