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 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, commissioned by the Liverpool Biennial and the Kadist Foundation, is an extension of her work with young Polish women and the writings of Polish/Jewish philosopher Janusz Korczak. She lives and works in Los Angeles.
