Based in: New York
Valerie Snobeck had three solo shows in 2012: an eponymous exhibition at Le Consortium in Dijon, They Seem Removed at Thomas Duncan Gallery in Los Angeles and Grand Beauty Salon at Essex Street in New York. In each instance, she succeeded in transporting spectators deep inside her recurring dialogue between present, past and future. Group exhibitions in 2012 included New York: Directions, Points of Interest at Massimo de Carlo in Milan and I Think and That Is All That I Am at Thomas Duncan. She also exhibited at FIAC in Paris with Essex Street and NADA Miami with Thomas Duncan. American Standard Movement, a site-specific piece commissioned for the courtyard of the Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago (Snobeck's alma mater) in the Fall of 2012, will remain on view through October, 2013.
