EG Crichton

San Francisco, CA

website

E.G. Crichton is a visual artist who creates both gallery installations and collaborative public works. She uses a range of strategies to explore hidden histories, collective social concerns, site-specific subject matter, and controversies about desire. Her work grows out of a collusion between site and historical research, stories from her life, and stories from the lives of people she interviews. She often works within community settings and collaborates across disciplines with performers, writers, scientists and composers, to name a few. The resulting narratives form a layered exploration of both memory and record an uneasy alliance between private and public voices and images that addresses a space where repression encounters desire. Her work has been exhibited in art institutions and as public installations in Europe, Asia, Australia and across the US. She is a professor in the Art Department at UCSC and the first Artist-in-Residence for the GLBT Historical Society. Crichton earned her MFA from California College of Arts and Crafts in 1993 and her BA in Art from San Francisco State University in 1989.
