Drew Heitzler

by greater-la

Born in Charleston, South Carolina, Drew Heitzler received a BA from Fordham University in 1993 and an MFA from the City University of New York, Hunter College, in 2000. Heitzler’s practice, oriented in filmmaking but incorporating installation and photography, activates the forlorn monuments of American mystique for a broader critique of the forces from which they arose. His work has appeared at Locust Projects, Miami; Anthology Film Archives, New York; Kunsthaus, Basel, and elsewhere; it is held in the collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
