Nationality: United States
Born in Hartford, Connecticut in 1951, diCorcia studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and received a Masters of Fine Arts from Yale University in 1979. Early in his career, he obtained grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, and his work was featured in a solo exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1993. Recent one-person shows include those held at the Los Angeles Museum of Art (2008) and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston (2007). In 2009, diCorcia's critically acclaimed Thousand, an exhibition featuring an extraordinary installation of 1,000 of the artist's Polaroid photographs, was on display at David Zwirner; and in 2010 it was on view at the Gwangju Biennale. His work is represented in major collections worldwide, including the Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Museum Folkwang, Essen; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Tate Gallery, London; and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London. DiCorcia lives and works in New York and currently teaches at Yale University.
