About the Artist
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 in solo exhibitions at Contemporary Arts Museum Houston and Art Museum of Southeast Texas in Beaumont. She was the 2017 Josephine Mercy Heathcote Fellow at MacDowell, New Hampshire, and Art League Houston’s 2018 Texas Artist of the Year. Fuchs currently works in Houston, Texas, where she lives with her dog, two cats, and seven plants.
