Sarah + Joseph Belknap
The Belknap’s current work is fueled by research and ventures into the realm of cosmology, astronomy, and the technologies by which these fields are made possible. In recent years they have had solo exhibitions at such venues as the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago; The Arts Club of Chicago; Heaven Gallery, Chicago; and the Chicago Artist’s Coalition. Their work has also been included in numerous group exhibitions, including shows at Rockford University Art Gallery, Rockford, IL; A+D Gallery, Columbia College Chicago; Crane Arts, Philadelphia; Hyde Park Art Center, Chicago; and the Sullivan Galleries, SAIC, Chicago. The Belknaps are also recipients of a number of awards and grants, including a residency at the Vermont Studio Center, the BOLT residency at Chicago Artist’s Coalition, and the James Nelson Raymond Fellowship. Both Sarah and Joseph Belknap received their MFA’s from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2010, 2009, respectively) and are the founders of their own design firm, Iamhome.
