Ze has exhibited works and performances at institutions such as: Overgaden (CPH), Kunsthal Charlottenborg (CPH), Museet for Samtidskunst (ROS), Aarhus Litteraturcenter (AAR), The Venice Biennial (VEN), FRAC Champagne Ardenne (REIMS), Gallery Tif Sigfrids (LA), Inkonst (MAL).
Dylan Gauthier (b. Santa Monica, CA) is an artist, curator, and writer who works through long-form projects to engage with ideas of ecology, architecture, collectivity, time, media and networks, participation and utopian systems. His work explores openings in the built environment – be they post-natural wilderness sites or digital landscapes – with an eye towards producing new interactions with overlooked or neglected spaces or architectures of desire. Gauthier holds an MFA in Integrated Media from Hunter College at the City University of New York (CUNY), where he currently teaches courses in emerging media (theory and production).
Gauthier has participated in exhibitions and presented projects at the International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP), the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts at Harvard University, EFA Project Space, MoMA PS1, MASS MoCA, the Walker Art Center, the Bronx Museum, Flux Factory, Stacion Kosovo, the Chimney, Parsons/the New School, the Columbus College of Art and Design, 80WSE Gallery at NYU, and the Neuberger Museum of Art at SUNY Purchase.
In 2014, along with Juliana Driever, he co-curated the 2014 Art in Odd Places festival of public art in New York City, and received a Wave Farm/MAAF award for the composition Fabric/Fragment of an Urban Wilderness (2013). He was the 2015 NEA supported Ecological Artist-in-Residence at ISCP, a resident at the Blue Mountain Center, and a visiting artist at Haverford College, as well as at the Institute for Hautes Études en Artes Plastiques (iheap) in Paris and New York City. Gauthier is currently the inaugural artist-in-residence at the Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art, and an Emerging Artist Fellow at Socrates Sculpture Park.
