Statement

Sean Fader is a conceptual artist working in the media of photography, performance, social practice, and the Internet. His most recent project is 365 Profile Pics, an exploration of social media and online exchange. This year-long project culminates in an exhibition at the SPRING/BREAK Art Show 2017 with Denny Gallery. Fader’s other recent work, Backdrop for the Rebirth of the Collective Author was a response to Richard Prince, who reproduced a photograph from Instagram of Fader’s performance piece #wishingpelt for his exhibition at Gagosian.

Sean Fader received his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, his MA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, and his BFA from the New School in New York City. His work has been exhibited throughout the United States and internationally in Dubai, Canada, Mexico and England. Fader was named a NYFA Fellow in 2013 and A Blade of Grass Fellow for 2012-2013, and he received Magenta Foundation’s Flash Forward Award for Emerging Photographers in 2012. Recent exhibitions include #wishingpelt, performed at Defibrillator Gallery in Chicago (2013), Spring Break Art Show and Pulse Art Fair in New York City (2014), White Boys curated by Hank Willis Thomas and Natasha L. Logan at Haverford College (2013), and Sup?, a solo exhibition at the University of Illinois in Springfield (2014). He has received press coverage in MOMUS, Hyperallergic, Art F City, the Huffington Post, and Slate.com.
