Anthony Goicolea creates narrative tableaus using a variety of distinct media. Photography, drawing, painting, video and installation elements interact with one another in discrete works. Although his media is diverse, each piece is concerned with conveying a strong narrative within the framework of a fictional world. These narratives address themes of alienation within social groups, rituals and shared histories, homogeneity, assimilation, and transitional periods of gestation.
Anthony obtained a BA in Art History and a BFA in Painting from the University of Georgia and received an MFA from Pratt Institute. He was accepted into the “AIM” program at the Bronx Museum of Art and has been awarded the Joan Mitchell Foundation Fellowship, the 2005 BMW Photo Paris Award and the 2006 CINTAS Fellowship.
Anthony lives and works in New York and exhibits in the US and overseas. His work is in the collections of The Whitney Museum of Art, The Brooklyn Museum, MoMA, The Guggenheim, The Chicago Museum of Contemporary Photography, The Hirshhorn Museum, The North Carolina Museum of Art, The ASU Museum of Art, The Miami Art Museum, The Helmond and the Groninger Museum in the Netherlands, The Herbert Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University, El Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Castilla in Leon, Spain, The Yale University Collection and 21C Museum in Kentucky.
