Steeped in Americana, Keith Mayerson’s work features historical and fictional figures who have shaped America’s national identity. In addition to some forty-two paintings in an installation entitled “My American Dream” at the 2014 Whitney Biennial, Mayerson was included in the upstart, curator-driven SPRING/BREAK Art Show and a solo exhibition at Derek Eller Gallery (New York). Other exhibitions include those at David Shelton (Houston, TX), Robert Blumenthal Gallery (New York), The Journal Gallery (Brooklyn), and Zach Feuer (New York). Mayerson’s work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York), the Museum of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles), the Corcoran (Washington, D.C), the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Cleveland Museum of Art. He has a B.A. from Brown University, and an MFA from the University of California, Irvine. He lives in New York City.
