Barbara Bloom Biography

Barbara Bloom (b. Los Angeles, California: 1951) is a conceptual artist living and working in New York, NY. She emerged as part of the pictures generation in the 1970s, after receiving a BFA from the California Institute of the Arts (Cal Arts) under the mentorship of John Baldessari. Bloom has exhibited internationally and prolifically since the 1970s, and her work continues to singularly explore new forms of conceptual mixed media. She often works directly in dialogue with the history of film and literature, deftly reposturing their manifestations within popular culture. She has received awards, grants, and fellowships from the Guggenheim Fellowship, Getty Research Institute, the National Endowment of the Arts, among others. Prominent institutions in the United States and Europe, such as the International Center of Photography, New York, and Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin, have exhibited surveys and solo exhibitions of her work.
