This conversation between artist Zoe Crosher and Jan Tumlir took place on February 16th, 2010. The discussion situated Crosher’s work in relation to its historical precedents in the art of Conceptualism, the Pictures Group, and identity politics, exploring self-invention and role-playing as told through personal photographs, and what comes of the great “archival theme” in the digital era.
Los Angeles–based artist Zoe Crosher and Jan Tumlir appeared in Aperture magazine, issue 198 which featured Jan Tumlir’s article, “Femme Fatale: Zoe Crosher’s reconsidered archive of Michelle duBois.” Crosher and Tumlir have co-taught a class at Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, on the impact of geography on local forms of artistic production.
