Cornford & Cross are UK based collaborative artists. Matthew Cornford and David Cross began working together while studying at Central Saint Martins in 1987, graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1991. Together they investigate art’s ability to test concepts, boundaries and definitions, engaging with specific spatial, social and historical contexts.
They have carried out an Arts Council residency at the London School of Economics, and a British Council residency at Vitamin Creative Space in Guangzhou, China. In Europe, they have exhibited in Athens, Bologna, Rome, Stockholm and Vienna; in the USA in San Fransisco, Philadelphia and New York. In London their work has been exhibited at the Camden Arts Centre, the ICA, Photographers’ Gallery and South London Gallery. In addition to a number of site-specific projects in England including for EAST International, they have exhibited at Aspex Gallery, De La Warr Pavilion, Exchange Gallery, Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art, and Wolverhampton Art Gallery. A monograph, Cornford & Cross, was published by Black Dog, London in 2009.
