Jeremy Bolen is a Chicago based artist and educator interested in site specific, experimental modes of documentation and presentation. Much of Bolen’s work involves rethinking systems of recording in an attempt to observe invisible presences that remain from various scientific experiments and human interactions with the earth’s surface. Bolen received his MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2012 and is a recent recipient of a Anthropocene Campus Residency in Berlin, Germany; Center for Land Use Interpretation Residency in Wendover, Utah; Joshua Tree Highlands Residency in Joshua Tree, CA and the Provost Award for Graduate Research from the University of Illinois at Chicago. His work has been exhibited at numerous locations including La Box, Bourges; MOCP, Chicago; The Mission, Houston; Galerie Zürcher, Paris; Andrew Rafacz, Chicago; Salon Zürcher, New York; The Drake, Toronto; Untitled, Miami; Gallery 400, Chicago; Depaul University Art Museum, Chicago; Hyde Park Art Center, Chicago, and Roots and Culture, Chicago. Bolen currently serves as a Lecturer at the School of Art Institute of Chicago.
