Dave Greber (b. 1982, Philadelphia) is an installation artist who offers a mystic reading of contemporary archetypes using video and sculpture. Combining pop conventions with visionary revelations, his abstract parables mischievously undermine spiritualist materialism.
He began exhibiting artwork as a member of New Orleans-based collective, The Front, and since has been featured in Crystal Bridges’ State of the Art, Lorna Mills’ Ways of Something (Dreamlands, Whitney Museum of American Art), C24 Gallery’s Double Crescent, and solo exhibits with the Arthur Roger Gallery in New Orleans. Recently, his artistic identity has expanded to that of a secular pilgrim as a thru-hiker on the Appalachian Trail, a metaphysical healer in Taos, NM, a brewer of wild-foraged beverages in Norway, and as the AV Manager of the Prospect.4 Triennial. He was commissioned by MTA Arts and Design to create an award-winning, 52-channel video installation which played throughout the Fulton Center Transportation Hub, in Lower Manhattan, from July 2018-March 2019. He has participated in many studio residencies including through the NCCA in St. Petersburg, Russia, Narva Kunstiresidentuur, Estonia, and Salon in a commercial mall in New Orleans.
Currently, he resides in New Orleans and works for the Joan Mitchell Center and Tulane University. He has upcoming shows at SITE Gallery Houston, TX and a collaborative solo show w/ Kanrec Sakul in Košice, Slovakia.
