Joseph Maida (American and Italian, born Philadelphia) is an artist based in New York City. His work explores enduring, if outmoded, notions of postwar domesticity as they relate to both the American home and the United States’ identity from within and abroad.
Maida’s work has been exhibited in New York, including the Bronx Museum of Art, the Queens Museum of Art, Wallspace, the Homefront Gallery, Art In General, Artists Space, and PS122, and internationally at the Reina Sofía National Museum (Madrid), the Pro-Arte Center (St. Petersburg), the Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art (Rotterdam), the Kunsthalle Wien (Vienna), and the Nikon Salons (Tokyo and Osaka). His work has been supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Japan-U.S. Friendship Commission, and the Joan Mitchell Foundation. His editorial commissions have appeared in magazines such as The New York Times Magazine, New York, W, Details, GQ, The London Telegraph Sunday Magazine, Newsweek, House and Garden, Tokion, andWallpaper.
Maida received a BA, summa cum laude, from Columbia University, where he studied architecture and art history, and an MFA in photography from Yale University. Maida has taught since 2002 at the School of Visual Arts. From 2005-2011, he also taught at Parsons, the New School for Design. In 2011, he was appointed lecturer at Yale University’s School of Art.
