Biography

Ethan’s drawing, video, sculpture and installation projects delve into the factual, idealized, absurd, and uncomfortable ways in which histories are told, retold and molded into flawed and grandiose narratives. Ethan received his B.A. from Carleton College and his M.F.A from The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Recent and upcoming solo museum shows include the Institute of Contemporary Art Boston, Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville, the Clay Center in West Virginia and the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, NH. Ethan is represented by La Galerie Particulière in Paris and Brussels, Slete Gallery in Los Angeles and Winston Wachter Fine Art in New York City and Seattle. Ethan was recently awarded the Stein Emerging Artist Prize by MOCA Jacksonville, participated as Artist in Residence at Facebook Inc., was a fellow at the Ballinglen Foundation in Ireland, received a Massachusetts Cultural Council Fellowship and was included in the 2013 deCordova Museum’s Biennial with a three story wall drawing. His work is in many pub-lic, private and corporate collections and has been reviewed and published widely around the world. A monograph on his work came out in the fall of 2015 with the German publisher Hatje Cantz. His film project “Dust” with Harvest Films and wife Vita Weinstein Murrow was an official selection of the 2008 New York Film Festival. The Murrow’s also published their “mostly” wordless picture book, “The Whale” in Europe with Big Picture Press and in the USA shortly after that with Candlewick Press. With the support of Tufts and SMFA and a Daynard Fellowship, Ethan also collaborates with the University of Jordan and the National Gallery in Amman on annual work-shops for emerging artists in the Middle East.
