About Lewis Koch

Drawing upon aspects of photography, sculpture, assemblage and text, Lewis Koch calls attention to the often unremarked upon elements of everyday life. Over the past thirty-five years, his work has been shown in garages, on kiosks and billboards, as well as in museums and galleries, with solo exhibitions in New York, London, Brussels, Seoul, Toronto, Chicago and Los Angeles. His work is in permanent collections throughout the United States, Canada and Europe, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Maison Européenne de la Photographie (Paris), Museum for Fotokunst/Brandts (Odense), Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, Whitney Museum of American Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago). As an artist-in-residence at Copenhagen’s Fotografisk Center, Koch created the web project 'Touchless Automatic Wonder' which provides an overview of his work in photography and assemblage prior to 2001. It is also the basis for a monograph (Borderland Books, Madison, 2009) by the same title. More recently, 'When Things Dream,' the third installation in the artist’s Garage Trilogy is shown on the web at www.afsnitp.dk as 'Garageography 3.0.7'- a comprehensive, labyrinthine presentation of Koch's work in installation.
