Chloe received her BS from the University of Texas at Austin and MFA from the New York Academy of Art. While at the NYAA, she concentrated in painting and was awarded the Belle Artes Residency and the Chubb Post-Graduate Fellowship. In 2023, Chiasson was awarded the prestigious Fountainhead Residency and presented her first solo institutional exhibition at Dallas Contemporary. Entitled Keep Left at the Fork, this presentation brought together the largest body of work by the artist to date. Chiasson has shown internationally in London, Germany, and Hong Kong. Her work has been featured in Artsy, The Brooklyn Rail, Hyperallergic, Juxtapoz Magazine, Artnet News, and New American Paintings.


Chiasson’s practice explores themes of self-expression and queer identity. Figures inhabit environments reminiscent of her childhood in Texas that not only include but also celebrate queer identity within its distinct cultural context. By juxtaposing images from different periods and finding unexpected resonances within these disparate moments, she challenges us to consider a rewritten narrative. Chiasson’s work is alive with symbology, autobiography, dissonances and resonances, allowing space for larger themes that reflect the varied theatre of queer life.
