Zachary Royer Scholz (b. 1978 Washington, DC) is an artist, designer, cultural critic, writer, and occasional curator based in San Francisco, California. In his material practice he generates works by reshaping discarded objects and altering existing structures. His writing investigates the ways objects operate within and against existing cultural schema. And, his curation highlights artworks sympathetic to his own aims, using exhibition strategies derived from the internal logic of the material presented. Scholz's artworks have been exhibited at the Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, the K2 Contemporary Art Center, The San Diego Art Institute, and the Contemporary Jewish Museum, as well as with numerous commercial and nonprofit art galleries. He is the founder of the process-based art space Project 7, an Art Practical & Daily Serving Staff Writer, and co-curated the exhibition Illegitimate Business that launched the alternative exhibition entity known as Will Brown. He holds a BA from Stanford University, and a MA and MFA from the California College of the Arts.
