Monsieur Zohore is an Ivorian-American artist based in Baltimore and New York.His practice is invested in the consumption and digestion of culture through the conflation of domestic quotidian labor with art production. Through performance, sculpture, installation, and theater, his practices explore queer histories alongside his Ivorian-American heritage through a multi-faceted lens of humor, economics, art history, and labor.
He received his BFA from the Cooper Union in 2015 and his MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2020. Zohore is the 2020 recipient of the WPA and Warhol Foundation Wherewithal Research Grant, and is currently the Assistant Professor of Painting and Drawing at Virginia CommonWealth University . His work has been exhibited in numerous venues including Sprus Gallery (Beijing), Galleria Bianconi (Milan), Ethan Cohan (New York), Springsteen (Baltimore), Canada Gallery (New York), and Jack Barrett Gallery (New York) as well as at the 2020 Material Art Fair (Coyoacan, CMDX). Zohore has also been invited to show at The Jonah Bokaer Foundation (Hudson), Socrates Sculpture Park (New York), The Rochester art Center (Rochester) The Baltimore Museum of Art (Baltimore), Washington Projects for the Arts (Washington D.C.), and at The Columbus Museum of Art (Columbus).
