Steven and William Ladd

August 02 — August 15

New York based artists Steven Ladd and William Ladd have been making art together since 2000. Steven makes all of his own clothing and loves textiles— especially those passed down with embedded memories. He loves drawing, making books and proposals, anything that can help to communicate his wild imagination. William is the builder and the head of production who sets his mind to a project through completion. In a day he can spend a few hours beading beautiful intricate objects, then move to constructing life-size spaces for immersive exhibitions. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, the brothers have developed an expanded practice consisting of text, drawing, sculpture, installation, performance and design. They have combined a range of techniques, forms and practices, forging a unique aesthetic vocabulary. Steven and William have had major solo museum shows at The Contemporary Museum, Honolulu, Mingei International Museum, San Diego, Parrish Art Museum, Watermill, NY, Saint Louis Art Museum and their works are included in private and museum collections internationally, including Musée des Arts Décoratifs, LACMA, the Kennedy Center, Agnes Gund Collection, Beth Rudin DeWoody and Shelly and Philip Aarons. They have received awards from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, The Pollock-­Krasner Foundation, Brookly
