This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Ellen Harvey was born in the United Kingdom and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She is a 1999 graduate of the Whitney Independent Studio Program and took part in the PS1 National Studio Program in 2001. She was a recipient of the New York Foundation for the Arts Lily Auchincloss Painting Fellowship in 2001.

Her work comprises video, installation and painting, although her work is generally primarily concerned with the theoretical and social implications of painting's status as an art signifier within society.

Recent solo exhibitions include "New is Old" for the Center for Contemporary Art in Warsaw, Poland, "Context is Everything" at Mullerdechiara Gallery in Berlin, Germany and "A Whitney for the Whitney at Philip Morris" for the Whitney Museum at Philip Morris, New York. She has been included in group exhibitions at the Project, Los Angeles, the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Sculpture Center, the Prague Biennial, PS1 Museum, the Queens Museum, Artists Space, The Secession, the Philadelphia Institute of Contemporary Art, the Seattle Art Museum and the Kwanju Biennial, among others.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Ellen Harvey, born in 1967 at Farnborough, Kent, U.K., is a Brooklyn based artist working in a variety of media, including painting, video, installation and performance. She is a graduate of Harvard University, Yale Law School and attended both the Whitney Independent Study Program and the PS1 National Studio Program.

Harvey has exhibited extensively both in the United States and internationally. She has been the recipient of numerous awards including a Rema Hort Mann Foundation Artist’s Award in 2004, a Philadelphia Exhibitions Initiative Award in 2004, and a Lily Auchincloss Foundation Fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts in 2002, among others.

She is known for work that uses traditional aesthetics and media in surprising ways to call into question the social or physical situation in which it is placed.
