New York-based artist Phoebe Washburn creates large-scale architectural installations by amassing together cardboard, wood planks, and other varied building materials. Currently, Washburn is exhibiting in a solo show titled, “Phoebe Washburn: Nudes, Housed Within Their Own Clothes and Aware of Their Individual Thirst, Descending a Staircase” at the National Academy Museum, New York. Additional recent solo shows of hers include “Nunderwater Nort Lab” at Zach Feuer Gallery and “Temperatures in a Lab of Superior Specialness” at Mary Boone Gallery, both in New York. Washburn has exhibited works in many international venues, notably, the Kestnergesellschaft in Hannover, Germany; Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin, Germany; Lerimonti Gallery in Milan, Italy; and in an upcoming show at Kunsthallen Brandts in Odense, Denmark. Her installation work has been featured in Art in America, The New York Times, Artforum, ARTnews, L Magazine, and New York magazine, amongst others. Washburn received a bachelor of fine arts degree from Newcomb College, New Orleans, and a master of fine arts degree from the School of Visual Arts, New York.
