Uta Barth was born in Berlin, Germany. She lives and works in Los Angeles.

Since the early 1990’s, Barth has made visual perception the primary content of her work. The Ground and Field series brought her to international attention and this attention has continued as each of the following projects presented observations about human perception in ever changing ways. Unlike most photography, which seeks out a central subject, Barth has made what she calls “the choice of no choice” and confined her practice to the ambient, the peripheral, incidental and ephemeral. Her images trace light, time and optical afterimages and they aim to ask us to become invested and conscious of our own perceptual awareness.

Uta Barth has exhibited internationally at numerous institutions including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, MCA, Chicago, and Museum of Modern Art, Istanbul. Her work is held in several important public collections including Tate Modern, London, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, Museum of Modern Art in New York, Metropolitan Museum, New York, Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall, Stockholm, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis. On may 2012 Galería Elvira González will show her first exhibition in Spain.
