About Steven & William Ladd

Steven and William Ladd are brothers born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1977 and 1978.  Steven studied at Rockhurst University where he explored theatre, fashion, performance and art.  William travelled the world as a model and started fine tuning his interest in beadwork.  They reunited in Brooklyn, New York and have been collaborating for the past ten years. Together they have forged a body of work that exists in a nexus of text, drawing, sculpture, installation, performance, design, and fashion.  They have combined a range of techniques, forms, and practices, forging something which is uniquely theirs.  The values guiding their collaboration are: Spend your life doing what you love, Be focused and disciplined, and Collaborate.  The brothers work has been included in exhibitions at The Smithsonian Institution: Cooper Hewitt, National Design Museum, The Decorative Arts Museum at the Louvre, The Museum of Art and Design, and The Contemporary Museum Hawaii.
