Speakers

Kurt Simonson

Kurt Simonson (b. 1977 in St Paul, Minnesota) is an artist/educator whose work explores the longings and tensions that surround our ideas of home, community, and identity.  Whether connecting the myth and memory of his own upbringing in Minnesota, wandering the globe in search of alternate forms of community, or taking intimate portraits of his closest friends, questions about family, story, and belonging remain at the heart of his curiosity.  

Kurt's work is regularly exhibited throughout the country and internationally, including a recent solo exhibition at Newspace Center for Photography in Portland, Oregon, and group exhibits at the San Diego Museum of Art, the Center for Fine Art Photography (Fort Collins, Colorado), RayKo Photo Center (San Francisco, California), and the Foto8 Gallery in London, England.  His work has been published in the London Sunday Times Magazine, Fraction MagazineLenscratch, AintBad, and Dodho Magazine.  In 2012 he received a Curator’s Choice award from CENTER Santa Fe and was shortlisted in Photolucida's Critical Mass, and in 2015 he was named one of LensCulture’s 50 Emerging Talents.  

Kurt teaches at Biola University in La Mirada, California, where he is an Associate Professor of Photography in the Art Department.  He lives and works in Long Beach, where you can probably find him eating breakfast.
