Biography

Anton Ginzburg (b. 1974, St. Petersburg, Russia) is a New York-based artist, known for his work in film, sculpture and painting, which investigate historical narratives and studies of place, representation, and post-Soviet identity. His work has been shown in numerous exhibitions, in venues such as the 54th Venice Biennale, the Blaffer Art Museum at the University of Houston, Southern Alberta Art Gallery in Canada, Palais de Tokyo in Paris, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, White Columns in New York, Lille 3000 in Euralille, France, and the first and second Moscow Biennales, among others. 

 

Ginzburg's practice remains conceptually driven, exploring select narratives through multiple mediums. Connecting cultural legacies of Eastern Europe with contemporary Western visual languages, Ginzburg presents immersive exhibitions that meditate on the poetics of his chosen theme. Recent significant exhibitions include Blue Flame: Constructions and Initiatives (2016), Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Canada; Terra Corpus (2014), Blaffer Art Museum, Houston; and At the Back of the North Wind (2011), 54th Venice Biennale. 

 

Born in 1974 in Saint Petersburg, Russia, Ginzburg received a classical arts education before immigrating to the United States in 1990. He earned a BFA from Parsons School of Design, The New School in 1997, and attained an MFA from Bard College, Milton Avery Graduate School of Arts, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York. His films have been screened at the Whitechapel Gallery in London, Rotterdam International Film Festival (IFFR), Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, Les Rencontres Internationales in Paris, Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin and New York Film Festival/Projections among others.
