About Lindsey White
Lindsey White’s practice uses photography to present images that question truth and the absurd with a touch of humor. Past projects have included a look into the mundane repetitive nature of daily life as well as journeys in search of what she deems to be miraculous. She masterfully translates wit and intellectual fodder into images that playfully challenge perception. While in residence at Studio 3325, White built film sets in the studio and around the church.
Lindsey White is an Oklahoma native who lives and works in San Francisco, CA. She has been included in numerous exhibitions nationally and internationally, including the New York Book Fair, ACME., Los Angeles, CA; Aurora Picture Show, Houston, TX; Deadpan Exchange II
Festival, Berlin; and Barengasse Museum, Zurich. She was an artist-in-residence at Headlands Center for the Arts in 2010, a recipient of the 2008-2009 Fellowship at the Kala Institute of Art in Berkeley, CA, and a finalist in 2012 and 2010 for the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art's prestigious Society for the Encouragement of Contemporary Art (SECA) Award. She teaches at San Francisco Art Institute and California College of the Arts.
Lindsey White is also a co-founder of Will Brown, a para-curatorial/artist-run experiment that explores exhibition-making as a critical practice without actually showing, selling, or insuring any artwork. In addition to their storefront program (2012-2014), Will Brown has realized projects with Kadist Foundation, Wattis Institute, di Rosa, and has a forthcoming exhibition at the Berkeley Art Museum in the summer of 2015.
