Keith Mayerson

Keith Mayerson has exhibiting since 1993. His exhibitions are often installations of images that create larger narratives. Each work is imbued with allegorical content that relates to the world, yet allows for the transcendent and sublime through its formal nuances. The works stand on their own for form and content, but experiencing the images in context as a series, like a prose poem of images on walls, the viewer creates the ultimate meaning for the installations. 

Mayerson was a Semiotics and Studio Art major at Brown University and received his MFA from University of California, Irvine, in 1993. His work is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Los Angles County Museum of Art; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Cleveland Museum of Art; the Columbus Museum of Art; the Corcoran Gallery, Washington D.C.; and the Whitney Museum of American Art. He lives and works in New York City.
