Edgar Arceneaux

Born in 1972, Los Angeles-based artist Edgar Arceneaux received a BFA from the Art Center College of Design and an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts. Arceneaux constructs drawings, installations, video, and film works as complex arrangements of association that examine adjacencies and points of contact between implausible relations. From 1999 to 2012 Arceneaux served as Director of the Watts House Project, an artist-driven neighborhood redevelopment project centered on the historic Watts Towers. Arceneaux and art historian Sue Bell Yank co-founded WHP as an organization in 2009. Arceneaux cares about the relationship between art and social space and has committed his professional life to this exploration. Arceneuax has participated in artist residencies at Art Pace in San Antonio; Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine; and Fachhochschule Aachen in Germany. Solo exhibitions of his work have been presented at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; the Kitchen, New York; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; The Studio Museum in Harlem; and the Museum für Gegenwartskunst in Basel, Switzerland. His work was recently included in Marking Time at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, Australia; Mutatis, Mutandis at the Vienna Secession, Vienna, Austria; and the 2008 Whitney Biennial, New York. He is represented by Susanne Vielmetter in Los Angeles and Praz-Delavallade in Paris.
