Doug Ashford (born in 1958, Rabat) lives in New York. Since 1989 he has taught fine art at The Cooper Union. Ashford was part of the artists’ collaborative Group Material, developing the exhibition form into an artistic medium using display design and curatorial juxtaposition as a critical location. Since 1996, Ashford has continued to make paintings, write, and create projects for museums or other public institutions. His work has been subject to solo exhibitions at Bureau Publik, Copenhagen; Grazer Kunstverein; and Wilfried Lentz Gallery, Rotterdam. Recent group exhibitions include MAK, Vienna; dOCUMENTA 13, Kassel; and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
