Todd Gray

Todd Gray attended Cal Arts in the late 1970s and worked as Michael Jackson's official photographer from 1979-1984. In the late 1980s, Gray returned to Cal Arts to receive his MFA. Gray's work explores and transmogrifies his experience of Pop culture and imagery into a dark and conceptually challenging vision. "Fluent in cultural iconography, driven by introspection, and steeped in issues of corporate politics and racial identity, Todd Gray's photo-based works are challenging in almost every sense of the word." Work by Todd Gray has been included in many notable museum exhibitions, including Committed to the Image: Contemporary Black Photographers at the Brooklyn Museum of Art (2001); Made in California 1900-2000 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (2000); the nationally travelling Reflections in Black: African American Photography, A History Deconstructed, originated by the Smithsonian Anacostia Museum and Center for African American History (2000); Mouse: An American Icon at the Alternative Museum, New York (1998); Spheres of Influence (1997) and Man's World (1996) at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; The Present (H)our at the Oakland Art Museum; Convergence: 8 Photographers at the Georgia Museum of Art; and Body Evidence at the University of Connecticut, Storrs, among many others.
