Eve Fowler

Eve Fowler (b. 1964; Philadelphia, PA) lives and works in Los Angeles, California. Expanding from a foundation of photography, her two-dimensional works take the form of billboards, paintings, posters, prints, collages, and signs using mediums such as neon, paper, paint, and vinyl. In addition, she creates installations, films, and sound works made through collaborations with other artists, filmmakers, and writers.

Fowler earned her BA at Temple University in 1986 and her MFA at Yale University in 1992. She has presented solo exhibitions at Morán Morán, Los Angeles; Dundee Contemporary Arts, Scotland; Participant Inc, New York; and ArtSpace, Sydney, Australia. Public art projects include: A Universal Shudder (curated by Jake Yuzna and BF Hall) for the LAX Art Program (2022); A Spectacle and Nothing Strange (animated by Aimee Goguen and curated by Jeanne Vaccaro and ONE Institute (2022); and The Manifest Destiny Billboard Project on the Interstate 10 Freeway, organized by LAND, 2014.

Fowler’s work was included in numerous group exhibitions, notably Sites of Reason: A Selection of Recent Acquisitions at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. She has published two books: Anyone Telling Anything Is Telling That Thing (Printed Matter, 2013) and Hustlers (Capricious, 2014). Her recent film, with it which it as it if it is to be, was screened at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Lumber Room, Portland, OR; and Tate St. Ives, UK, in 2018. She is a recipient of the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Roy Lichtenstein Award (2022), the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship (2021), the Radcliffe Institute Fellowship at Harvard University (2018–19), and an Art Matters grant (2017).

Fowler’s work is included in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco; and the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC.

In addition to her studio practice, Fowler organizes Artist Curated Projects, a Los Angeles-based curatorial project she cofounded in 2008 with artist Lucas Michael.
