Matthew Porter

Matthew Porter (b.1975, Pennsylvania) received his BA from Bard College in 1998 and his MFA from Bard-ICP in 2006. His work often features historical mash-ups, collapsing disparate events and cultural references within single frames, or spreading them out over a series of tightly edited photographs. Porter has been profiled in The New York Times and was included in the “After Photoshop” exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum Art (New York, 2012), as well as the International Center of Photography Museum’s “Perspectives 2010.”

Recent exhibitions include “Greet the Dust” at M+B (Los Angeles), “High Difference” at Invisible Exports (New York), and “Under Construction” (group show) at the Foam Museum in Amsterdam. Porter’s curatorial projects include “Seven Summits” at Mount Tremper Arts, “The Crystal Chain” at INVISIBLE-EXPORTS, and “Bedtime for Bonzo” at M+B. He is the co-editor of Blind Spot magazine Issue 45, and his writing and interviews have been featured in Triple Canopy, Blind Spot, At Large, ARTFORUM.com and Canteen. His work has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Porter teaches part time at Parsons The New School for Design in New York, and his first monograph was recently published by Mack Books. Porter lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
