Francesca Fuchs

Artadia Awardee

Francesca Fuchs received the Artadia Award in 2006 and 2012.

Born in London and raised in Germany, Francesca Fuchs moved to the U.S. in 1996 for the Core Program at the MFAH. Across her career, Fuchs’ critique of ‘importance’ has unfolded in rethinking the dismissal of the small, the intimate, the feminine, and the beloved, insisting that these objects illuminate fundamental truths about our selves, our communities, and our histories. Fuchs’ work has been shown in venues including Whitechapel Art Gallery, London; The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth; The Suburban, Oak Park, Illinois; and a solo exhibition at Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, TX. Fuchs currently works in Houston, Texas, where she lives with her dog, two cats, and seven plants.
