Andrew Moore is best known for his richly colored images of architectural and urban scenes. He has had eight solo shows in New York as well as numerous exhibitions in the U.S. and internationally. His photographs are represented in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Yale University Art Gallery, the Library of Congress, the Israel Museum, the High Museum, the Eastman House and the Canadian Centre for Architecture. Moore has been the recipient of grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, The New York State Council on the Arts, and several private foundations.
Chronicle Books published his photographs of Cuba, Inside Havana (2002) and Russia, Beyond Utopia (2005). The Public Art Fund published a catalogue of his pictures from Governors Island in 2004. In the fall of 2006 he was artist-in-residence at Dartmouth College. Recent exhibitions include being featured at The Queens Museum, Columbia University, and The Museum of the City of New York as part of their three parts retrospective on the legacy of Robert Moses, The Museum of Russian Art in Minneapolis, and works from his series in Cuba, Russia and Vietnam shown at the Moscow Arts Center.
Moore also began making experimental short films in the late 1980s, several of which were broadcast on MTV and PBS’s New Television series. Since then he has collaborated on film projects with David Byrne and Lee Breuer, and shot documentaries for The American Experience, The Discovery Channel, and WNET’s City Arts program. Moore was the producer and cinematographer for How to draw a bunny, a documentary feature on the artist Ray Johnson. The film premiered at the 2002 Sundance Festival, where it was awarded a Special jury prize. It is released on DVD by Palm Pictures, and was voted by New York Magazine as one of the 10 best films of 2004.
Moore was one of the founders of the Art of Science project, a university wide competition that celebrates the aesthetics of research and the ways in which science and art inform each other. He also teaches in the Photography M.F.A. program at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
