Walter Price (b. 1989, Macon, Georgia) lives and works in New York. His paintings are a mix of intimate recollections, cultural symbols, identity, and social questions. Summoning past experiences, such as growing up in the South or fighting fires while enlisted in the Navy, Price creates illustrative multi-dimensional vignettes, free from time and the laws of gravity, amalgamating into single scenes, often with contradictory perspectives and narratives. Recent solo exhibitions include MoMA PS1, New York (2018); Kölnischer Kunstverein, Cologne, Germany (2018); LUMA Foundation, Zurich (2017); Karma, New York (forthcoming 2019, 2016); The Modern Institute, Glasgow (2018, 2016). Selected recent group exhibitions include FRONT International: Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art, Cleveland, Ohio (2018); Halsey McKay, East Hampton New York (2018); Jessica Silverman, San Francisco (2018); Museum of Contemporary Art, Detroit (2017); Boghossian Foundation–Villa Empain, Brussels (2017); MAMCO Museé d’Art Moderne, Geneva (2017); Various Small Fires, Los Angeles (2017); Rental Gallery, East Hampton, New York (2017); Markus Lüttgen, Cologne, Germany (2017); Office Baroque, Brussels (2017); Rachel Uffner, New York (2016); The Journal Gallery, New York (2016). In 2017, Price was an Artists-in-Residence at the Guild Hall in East Hampton, New York and will be an Artist-in-Residence at the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, Captiva, Florida in 2018.
