Eve Fowler, expanding from a foundation in photography, creates work that coalesces art and language. Her two-dimensional works take the form of billboards, posters, prints, and signs, using mediums such as neon, paint, and vinyl. In addition, she also creates installations, films, and sound pieces, often resulting from collaborations with other artists, filmmakers, and writers. Fowler’s practice is concerned with the power of words, language, and cultural biases as those topics relate to gender politics and queerness, in a contemporary and historical context.

Eve Fowler (b. 1964, Philadelphia, PA) lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. A graduate of Temple University (BA, 1986), and Yale University (MFA, 1992), Fowler has had solo exhibitions at DCA Scotland; Participant Inc, NY; and in Sydney Australia at ArtSpace. Her work was included in Sites of Reason: A Selection of Recent Acquisitions at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and in a billboard project organized by LAND, in 2014. Her book Anyone Telling Anything Is Telling That Thing was published by Printed Matter in September of 2013. Her second book, Hustlers, was published in May of 2014, by Capricious Publishing. Fowler’s recent film with it which it as it if it is to be screened at LA MOCA; the Lumber Room, Portland, OR; and at The Tate St. Ives, in 2018. Her work is included collections at 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; The New Museum, New York; and The Smithsonian Institute, Washington, D.C. In addition to her studio practice, Fowler organizes Artist Curated Projects in Los Angeles. She is a recipient of a 2017 Art Matters grant and is currently a Radcliffe Institute Fellow.
