Zachary Fabri: From the Wolf to the Fox

November 19th, 2016
Organized by Dexter Wimberly
October 15, 2016–January 15, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 15, 2016 2­–5pm

Zachary Fabri’s artistic practice seeks to create a space for discourse around social and political systems of oppression through artworks that manifest in a range of mediums, including drawing, performance, photography, sculpture, and video. Continually investigating the movement and politics of the body, Fabri’s work incites viewers to locate themselves as “insider” or “outsider.” Fabri often meditates on the memory and weight of history; the ideologies and beliefs that define us. His works offer reminders of the ideas that shape identity―exploring its limits and possible transformations.

Zachary Fabri was born in Miami, Florida and currently lives in Brooklyn. He received a Bachelor of Fine Art in graphic design from the New World School of the Arts, Miami, in 2000, and later relocated to New York City to receive a MFA from Hunter College in 2007. Fabri’s work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally at Sequences Real-time Festival, Reykjavik, Iceland; the Nordic Biennale: Momentum, Moss, Norway; Gallery Open, Berlin; the Studio Museum in Harlem, New York; the Contemporary Art Museum, Houston; and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis. Solo exhibitions include the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, Art in General, and the Bindery Projects. He has been awarded the Franklin Furnace Fund for Performance Art, the New York Foundation for the Arts fellowship in interdisciplinary work, and most recently The Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award.
