Penelope Umbrico
Since the beginning
Works in New York, New York United States of America

Penelope Umbrico’s photo-based installations, video, and digital media works explore the ever-increasing production and consumption of images on the Internet. Navigating between consumer and producer, materiality and immateriality, and individual vs. collective expression, she views all images within this emergent environment as evidence for something other than what they depict. Umbrico has exhibited widely, both nationally and internationally and has participated in exhibitions including those at MoMA PS1, NY; Museum of Modern Art, NY; MassMoCA, MA; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, CA; Foto Museum, Brussels; Arts Santa Monica, Barcelona; Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane Australia; and the International Center of Photography, NY. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Guggenheim Museum, NY; Los Angeles Contemporary Museum of Art; Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY; Museum of Modern Art, NY; Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, IL; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the International Center of Photography NY, among others. She is the recipient of numerous awards including a Guggenheim Fellowship; Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship; John Gutmann Photography Award; Deutsche Bank-NYFA Fellowship; Peter S Reed Grant; Anonymous Was A Woman Award; and an Aaron Siskind Individual Photographer’s Fellowship.
