Frances Stark’s drawings, collages, videos, PowerPoint presentations, performances, and paintings have been extensively exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide. In 2017 a new suite of her paintings was included in the Whitney Biennial, her cinematic opera, The Magic Flute, premiered at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and an earlier work was featured in the Venice Biennale. In 2015, Stark’s sprawling mid-career survey, UH-OH: Frances Stark 1991-2015, opened at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles before traveling to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. That same year Stark was the subject of a solo exhibition titled Intimism, a survey of her video and digital works at The Art Institute of Chicago. In addition to being the author or subject of several books, Stark’s work has been recently included in prominent exhibitions such as the 2013 Carnegie International, the 2011 Venice Biennale, and the 2008 Whitney Biennial. This past summer in New York, Stark’s The Magic Flute was screened at the Museum of Modern Art and featured in her third solo exhibition at Gavin Brown’s enterprise. Stark was born in 1967 in Newport Beach, California. She currently lives and works in Los Angles, California.
