  • Catalogue Essay

    Using found materials as her subject matter, American artist Anne Collier documents our visual culture with the same approach as a classic still life photographer. Her intelligent and slyly playful imagery reframes appropriation for the 21st century. Collier’s Questions series documents a sequence of printed educational materials, each outlining a schematic approach to analyzing an academic problem. Removed from the context of the classroom, and presented as individual works, these questions and discussion prompts are transformed into a gentle but direct interrogation of the experience of looking at art.

    The suite of Questions offered here was shown in the Paper exhibition at Le Musée d’Art Modern et d’Art Contemporaine in Nice, France, in 2012. Questions was also included in the major 2014-2015 retrospective of Collier’s work at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, which toured to Bard College and The Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto, and in her solo 2018 exhibition at FRAC Normandie Rouen, France. A suite is also in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
