Peter Fend first showed, suddenly, in a group exhibition at the Baxter Art Museum at Caltech, in 1978. In 1979 he co-formed The Offices of Peter Fend, Colleen Fitzgibbon, Jenny Holzer, Peter Nadin, Richard Prince & Robin Winters. The Offices expired in 1980, at which point Fend followed a lawyer’s advice about collaborations and founded a business corporation for the art ideas, now called Ocean Earth Development Corporation. From 2005 to now, Fend has been living and working in Berlin, Germany, New Zealand and Italy. Ambitions are for work where the Chinese also seek a presence: Africa, the Middle East, South America.
