Institute of Contemporary Art Miami Presents: Anne Collier

ICA Miami presents a newly commissioned work by Anne Collier in the museum’s central stairwell. This is the first site-responsive wallpaper by the artist, and her first major presentation in Miami. In her photographic work that combines staged and often appropriated images, Collier examines mechanisms of representation, circulation, and objecthood of images.

Critically reflecting on the representation of women in mass media, her analog photographs feature found imagery, including posters, records, and comic strips from the 1950s and 1960s. Juxtaposing a sober, near-forensic approach to image-making with the charged gender dynamics of the found images she appropriates, Collier frames the apparatus of the camera as both an instrument of domination and emancipation.

Anne Collier (b. 1970, Los Angeles) has exhibited her work widely internationally in solo and group presentations. Recent survey exhibitions include Lismore Castle, Waterford, Ireland (2023); Sprengel Museum, Hannover, Germany (2018), which traveled to Fotomuseum Winterthur, Switzerland (2019); and a major survey at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, which traveled to the Hessel Museum of Art, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York (both 2014), the Aspen Museum of Art (2015), and the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto (2016); among many others. Collier’s work is part of numerous museum collections worldwide, including the Art Institute of Chicago; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; and Tate Modern, London. The artist lives and works in New York City.
