Zoe Walsh

Zoe Walsh earned their MFA in Painting/Printmaking from Yale University in 2016 and their BA in Art History and the Visual Arts from Occidental College in 2011. Walsh’s work is rooted in a studio-based painting practice which draws from photographic archives and film. They investigate possibilities for registering sensation in painting through color, light, and line as a means of proposing a model of eroto-intermediality across media and time. During the 2016-17 academic year, they were a Harriet Hale Woolley Fellow at the Fondation des États-Unis in Paris, France. While in residence, Walsh studied intersections between interior and exterior spaces in the architecture of Le Corbusier through the lens of trans* theories of subjectivity and embodiment. This work led to a solo exhibition at the Fondation des États-Unis in 2017. At Yale, Walsh was awarded the Al Held Travel Fellowship at the American Academy in Rome (2015). Their work has been exhibited at venues such as ltd los angeles, Los Angeles, La Maison des Arts, Malakoff, Alfred University, Alfred, Abrons Art Center, New York, Yve YANG Gallery, Boston and Pieter Performance Space, Los Angeles. They were a lecturer at the University of California, San Diego in the fall of 2017.
