Talia chetrit: biography, selected museum exhibitions, public collections and shows at kaufmann repetto



Talia Chetrit was born in 1982 in Washington DC. She now lives and works in New York.

For more than a decade, Talia Chetrit has been developing a photography and video practice marked by her investigations into sexuality and identity, thus challenging perceptions of pornography, voyeurism, and objectification. Videos and inkjet prints of her photographs oscillate between the personal and the private and the planned and the candid by capturing both consenting and unaware people, often in conjunction with her own body.


selected museum exhibitions

Chetrit’s recent solo exhibitions include Amateur, Maxxi Museum, Rome (2018); Showcaller, Kolnischer Kunstverein, Cologne (2018); Poser, Sies + Höke, Düsseldorf (2017); Aimia | Ago Photography Prize, Ago – Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto (2016); I’m Selecting, Sies + Hoke, Dusseldorf (2015).

Chetrit’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at such institutions as The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Sculpture Center, NY; LACMA, Los Angeles, CA; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami; among others.

Chetrit’s work is held in the collections of The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
