Penelope Umbrico

Penelope Umbrico’s photo-based installations, video, and digital media works utilize photo-sharing and consumer websites as an expansive archive to explore the production and consumption of images on the web. Her work navigates between producer and consumer, and the individual and the collective, with attention to the technologies that are produced by (and produce) these forces. Selected public collections include Denver Art Museum (CO), Guggenheim Museum (NY), International Center of Photography (NY), McNay Museum of Art (TX), Metropolitan Museum of Art (NY), Museum of Contemporary Photography (IL), Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego (CA), Museum of Modern Art (NY), Perez Art Museum (FL), San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (CA), and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (CA), among others. She lives in New York City.
