Wojciech Gilewicz

December 2016

Wojciech Gilewicz (b. 1974) is a Queens-based artist born in Poland. Gilewicz draws on his experience of the painting medium to create formally varied works that seek to investigate the boundaries of art and space. In his recording of reality, the camera itself fluidly transforms into a means of registering social relations, which take place ‘outside’ his actions. His solo exhibitions include Rockaway, Foksal Gallery, Warsaw, Poland (2015); Painter’s Painting, Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, Taipei, Taiwan (2013); and Front Room: Wojciech Gilewicz, Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, Saint Louis, MO (2008). His group exhibitions include Queens International, Queens Museum, Queens, NY (2013) and In Practice, SculptureCenter, Long Island City, NY (2009). His residencies and awards include The Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant (2014); Akiyoshidai International Art Village Residency, Yamaguchi, Japan (2011); and Changdong Art Studio of National Museum of Contemporary Art Residency, Seoul, South Korea (2010). He holds an M.F.A in Painting from the Academy of Fine Arts, Warsaw, Poland.
