About the Presenter
Anthony White is an artist and curator in Seattle, Washington, where he is currently represented by Greg Kucera Gallery. He is a recent graduate from Cornish College of the Arts, the first in his family to complete four years of professional training. White’s work consists of intricate portraits, still lifes, and objects meticulously spun from common PLA plastic. His work disrupts hierarchies of status and wealth by placing trivial souvenirs and low-brow accoutrements in luxurious environments. White recently exhibited a Solo Presentation Booth at EXPO Chicago 2019, as well as a solo exhibition (BLACK FRIDAY) at PUBLIC Gallery in London, UK. After his most recent solo show at Greg Kucera Gallery, and participation in a group show at KÖNIG Galerie Berlin, Anthony was named the recipient of the 2020 Neddy Painting Award, as well as a 2020 Fellowship Award from Artist Trust. He is currently in preparation for, In Crystallized Time, his curatorial project that will run from October ‘21 to January ‘22 at Museum of Museums, a dual artist exhibition at Henry Art Gallery, and will also be showcased at the Frye Art Museum, for their upcoming permanent collection exhibition, Recent Acquisitions in Contemporary Art. White’s work is collected globally, privately and publicly, including the permanent collection of the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, CA.
