Spring 2018 Visiting Artist Lecture Series 


Fiona Connor (b. 1981, Auckland, New Zealand) completed her bachelor’s degree in fine arts at the University of Auckland and received an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts in 2011. Connor’s practice exists at the intersection of architecture, sculpture and installation. By re-contextualizing objects and structures through painstakingly crafted replicas, Connor challenge viewer’s preconceived notions of how art should be experienced. Connor has had solo exhibitions at 1301PE, Los Angeles, CA, Lisa Cooley Gallery, New York, NY and the Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne, Australia among others. Her work has been shown in numerous group exhibitions including Stories of Almost Everyone, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA (2018), Chicago Architectural Biennial, Chicago, IL (2017), Made in L.A., Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA (2014 and 2012); the 13th Istanbul Biennial (2013); LAXART, Los Angeles, CA (2011); Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne, Australia (2010). Connor was a 2011 recipient of the Chartwell Trust Award for Patronage and a 2010 finalist for the Walters Prize.
