Alexandre Singh

Alexandre Singh (b. 1980, France) is a visual artist and writer based in New York. Characterized by a maze-like architecture, his work draws on various sources of inspiration from the history of literature, performance, collage, installation and conceptual photography. Often starting with elaborate, publicly presented lectures that blend historical fact with fiction, Singh’s work confronts visitors with outstanding juxtapositions of popular and consumer culture with highbrow references. Alexandre Singh's work has been exhibited in venues throughout Europe and the United States including The Serpentine Gallery (London); New Museum, New York; PS-1 MoMA, (New York); Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam); Palais de Tokyo (Paris) and Sprüth Magers (Berlin). Singh’s work is held by a number of private and public collections including MoMA and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (New York).
