Sharon Lockhart makes photographs and films born of in-depth research and collaboration with different communities over multiple years. Her projects are conceptually rigorous, formally precise, and socially and historically grounded, often dealing with the topic of labor. Her work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at major museums worldwide including The Artist’s Institute, The Arts Club of Chicago, Kunstmuseum Luzern, Bonniers Konsthall, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Israel Museum, Kunsthalle Zürich, the Vienna Secession, and the San Francisco Museum of Art. Her newest film, Rudzienko, was commissioned by the Liverpool Biennial and the Kadist Foundation and is an extension of her work with young Polish women and the writings of Polish/Jewish philosopher Janusz Korczak. Previous films include Goshogaoka, NŌ, Pine Flat, Lunch Break, and Teatro Amazonas. Lockhart previously taught at USC’s Roski School of Art and Design and is currently faculty in Photography and Media at the California Institute of the Arts. She is a recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship, the Alpert/MacDowell Fellowship, and most recently the Herb Alpert Award. She earned her BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and her MFA from the Art Center of College and Design. She lives and works in Los Angeles.
