Recently relocating from Los Angeles to New Mexico, Joshua Hagler’s work has followed a path of inquiry ranging from an intense interest in religious thought and its history into Westward Expansion, notions of progress and exploration, collective cultural mythologies—especially those reflected in Hollywood films—and the poetics of theoretical physics. With a focus on painting, Hagler’s ideas and interests expand into installation, video, animation, book making and other projects.
Since 2006, Hagler has exhibited in galleries and museums throughout North and South America, Europe, and Australia, including a long list of solo exhibitions. In the summer of 2017, he was awarded a spot at MICA’s Alfred and Trafford Klots Program for Artists in Brittany, France and, is currently attending the year-long Roswell Artist in Residence Program in New Mexico, which includes full financial support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Sustainable Arts Foundation. His project proposal for a major installation and exhibition was chosen by the Brand Library and Art Center in Los Angeles to debut in the summer of 2018.
