Trey Duvall is an artist and educator working in Denver, Colorado. Duvall’s creative practice includes various forms of large-scale installation, video, performance, and other sculptural or organizational mediums. His work concerns entropy, futility, humor, duration, stamina, and material or physical exhaustion.
In addition to site specific installation and performances, Duvall’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at venues including Rice University, Houston, TX (2018), Triumph Gallery, Chicago, IL (2017), RedLine Gallery, Denver, CO (2017), Galerie des Beaux-Artes de Nantes, Nantes, France (2017), Lawndale Art Center, Houston, TX (2016), Art League Houston, Houston, TX (2016-17), School of Visual Arts, New York, NY (2016), and Plot Manifest, Marfa, TX (2016). Duvall’s work has been featured on ABC News, Glasstire Magazine, the Houston Chronicle, and Art In America.
Duvall’s interest in creating opportunities for artists to engage with location and site specificity via installation art, led him to co-found SITE Gallery Houston in Houston TX in 2014. Duvall is currently acting Director and Curator of SITE Gallery Houston, supporting the gallery’s mission to “foster and support artwork that is one-of-a-kind based on the relationship between artist, place, space, and concept.”
The value and necessity of creating authentic and meaningful arts education has been a core pursuit for Duvall over the last decade. Duvall engages learners of all kinds in their own creative abilities; he works to help them explore how, as an artist, they can influence their community and realize their expansive agency as creators of culture.
Duvall received his BA in Art Education from Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado and his Masters of Fine Art in Sculpture from the University of Houston.
