Jim Skuldt at Boston University

  • Boston University, Room 346 808 Commonwealth Avenue Boston, MA 02215 (map)

Interested in the mediated realities we construct, normalize and inhabit, Jim Skuldt’s work probes our dwindling relationship with physicality: from the construction (and locking) of a renegade structure in the back yard of his Art school, to the acquisition and distribution of the 48-foot-diameter circular rotating touring stage formerly belonging to Neil Diamond, to the cataloguing of each piece of his neighbors’ profuse trash droppings over the course of a year, to the ongoing quest to ship himself worldwide within a modified shipping container. Skuldt is the recipient of numerous grants including the Creative Capital Foundation, Harpo Foundation, the California Community Foundation, and the Center for Cultural Innovation. His work has been exhibited worldwide at venues including Marlborough Chelsea; LTD Los Angeles; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; High Desert Test Sites, Joshua Tree, CA; Friche la Belle de Mai, Marseille; and SECONDroom, Antwerp.
