From the spaces of her immediate (often domestic) environment and from visual passages of cinematic spaces, Dawn Clements presents truthful but subjective works through multiple and fluid points of view. She works primarily on paper.
Selected exhibitions include solo shows at Pierogi Gallery (Brooklyn, NY), Acme Gallery (Los Angeles, CA), Hales Gallery (London, England), John Davis Gallery (Hudson, NY) and the Middlebury College Museum of Art (Middlebury, VT). Clements’ work was included in the 2010 Whitney Biennial (Whitney Museum of American Art) and in such galleries and museums as Kunsthalle Wien (Vienna, Austria) and Saatchi Gallery (London, England). She was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship, a MacDowell Fellowship, a Civitella Ranieri Fellowship, a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in the category of Printmaking/Drawing/Artists’ Books, and other grants and residencies. Her artwork is included in collections of the Museum of Modern Art (New York, NY), Whitney Museum of American Art (New York, NY), Saatchi Gallery (London), Brown University (Providence, RI), Tang Museum (Saratoga Springs, NY), Princeton University Art Museum (Princeton, NJ), Henry Art Gallery (Seattle, WA) and other public and private collections.
