Bemis Center For Contemporary Arts

Joseph Wilcox

Chicago, IL

By adopting the roles of image gatherer, entrepreneur, documentarian, object-maker, and organizer, Joseph Wilcox explores how institutional control, political systems, and social power structures undermine the autonomy of the individual. He is heavily influenced by photographs but is interested in images as part of an interdisciplinary approach to art-making; including socially engaged art, moving image, sculpture, and sound. While at Bemis, Wilcox plans to research how images are disseminated, manipulated, and gain value on the internet; investigate strategies at the intersection of new media, humor, and activism; and experiment with new filming and video editing techniques as well as digital imaging production.
