Josiah McElheny

Josiah McElheny is an artist living and working in New York. He has exhibited and published widely, with projects including recent solo museum shows at the The Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid (2009), Henry Art Gallery, Seattle (2008), Moderna Museet, Stockholm (2007), and MoMA, New York (2007) and two new books, which came out in 2010, “The Light Club” published by University of Chicago Press, and “Josiah McElheny: A Prism” by Rizzoli. In 2006, he was the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship. Last summer at Andrea Rosen Gallery, McElheny curated Crystalline Architecture, which began with the question: is it possible for a particular aesthetic form or structure to express both abstract concepts and political ideals?
