Margeaux Walter

Margeaux Walter is a Brooklyn-based artist working with photography, video, performance and installation.  Her current work explores how photographs inform, transform and masquerade personal identity, and specifically how advertising, consumerism and digital culture is altering that relationship.  Walter received her BFA from the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU (2006), and MFA from Hunter College (2014).  Recent exhibitions include Winston Wachter Fine Art in New York, Pentimenti Gallery in Philadelphia, the Griffin Museum in Boston, the Tacoma Art Museum, and the Delaware Center for Contemporary Arts.  In 2009, the Magenta Foundation chose her as a top emerging photographer in the United States; she was awarded Juror’s Choice at the Butler Institute of American Art’s National Midyear Exhibition; and she was commissioned to create a large-scale outdoor installation for the Art Omi Fields Sculpture Park in Ghent, NY.  In 2014, she was selected by the organization 14×48 to create a public billboard project in New York City.  Her work has been featured in publications such as The New York Times, NY Daily News, Seattle Times, Boston Globe and Scene Magazine.  She has been awarded artist in residence programs at Red Gate Gallery in Beijing, China (2011), and the Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga, CA (2012).
