Chloë Bass

Chloë Bass is a multiform conceptual artist working in performance, situation, conversation, publication, and installation. Her work uses daily life as a site of deep research to address scales of intimacy: where patterns hold and break as group sizes expand. Based in Brooklyn, she began her work with a focus on the individual (The Bureau of Self-Recognition, 2011 – 2013), followed by a study of pairs (The Book of Everyday Instruction, 2015 – 2018), recently completed Obligation To Others Holds Me in My Place (2018-2023), which investigates the immediate family,  and will continue to scale up gradually until she’s working at the scale of the metropolis. Her current project cycle, Since feeling is first (2021 – ongoing), examines intimacy through the scale of both the courtroom and the law.
