John Knight, artist
Born in 1945 in Hollywood; lives in Los Angeles and works in situ.
Los Angeles-based artist John Knight interrogates the latent political and social forces implicit in the world designed around us. Working with no signature style, form, or medium, the artist instead approaches each exhibition site by carefully considering its architecture, history, and functions. His museum interventions often resist being self-sufficient artworks, instead working in tandem with the existing context to augment its reality.
