About the Artist
Roe Ethridge (b. 1969) works in both editorial and fine art photography. Drawing upon the descriptive power of photography and the ease with which it can be accessed, duplicated, and recombined, Ethridge orchestrates visual fugues inspired by images in media culture and effectively reanimates that culture by reinserting his work within it. Ethridge’s work both copies and inspires copyists as part of a common and constantly evolving visual discourse.
Ethridge’s work has been shown extensively in venues around the world, including MOMA/PS1 (2000); Barbican Center, London (2001); Carnegie Museum of Art (2002); Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston (2005); The Whitney Biennial (2008); Museum of Modern Art, New York (2010); and Les Rencontres d’Arles, France (2011). He has had solo exhibitions at the Garage, Moscow (2011) and Le Consortium, Dijon, France (2013). In 2011 he was a finalist for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize.
