David Musgrave (b.1973, Stockton-on-Tees, UK) lives and works in London. He studied at Chelsea College of Art and Design where he now teaches. Musgrave creates understated, often poignant works that demand a level of scrutiny and attention rarely encouraged in contemporary culture. The speculative potential of visual experience lies at the heart of his practice. He has exhibited extensively and select solo exhibitions include greengrassi, London; V-A-C Foundation Palazzo delle Zattere, Venice; Luhring Augustine, New York; and Marc Foxx, Los Angeles. His work has been included in group exhibitions at institutions throughout Europe and the Americas, including Kunstverein Freiburg; Tate Britain, London; CAPC musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux; and Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, MO. His work is held in public collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; the Dallas Museum of Art; the Rhode Island School of Design, Providence; and Tate, London. In January 2013 Musgrave’s digital animation Studio golem was broadcast on Channel 4 in the UK.
