OPEN TO PUBLIC | Genevieve Gaignard (b. 1981) is a photographer and installation artist. Based in Los Angeles, Gaignard’s work “play[s] with the outward signifiers and stereotypes of race, class, and femininity, combining and remixing them into sometimes exaggerated but steadily ambiguous costumes.” Often through self-portraiture, Gaignard examines and disrupts assumptions about cultural identity, while embodying aesthetics of kitsch and provocation. Gaignard received an MFA in photography from Yale University, and a BFA in Photography from Massachusetts College of Art. Notable group exhibitions include the Studio Museum in Harlem, and the FLAG Art Foundation, with solo shows at MASS MoCA, the Houston Center for Photography, and Vielmetter, Los Angeles.
