Exhibiting artist Ben Gould will give an evening presentation on his visual art practice via Zoom.


Ben Gould   Born in Grass Valley, California in 1993, Ben Gould was raised in the foothills of the Sierra Mountains in a Gold Rush-era town, between decommissioned mines and the Yuba River—the geography of which has greatly informed my commitment to site specific projects and reinforced the importance of place. He has performed works throughout the country—from varied landscapes to institutional spaces—leading to solo gallery exhibitions, performances at museums and cultural centers, and extensive collaborations across disciplines. He has held performances at unique sites such as salt flats in Death Valley, a limestone cave in Kansas City, a bunker in the Marin Headlands, a canal in Amsterdam, and a moving vessel on the Chicago River. Most recently, his work has been presented by KANAL Centre Pompidou, Liberal Arts Roxbury NY, Bozar, Mistral Amsterdam, and The Center for Craft in Asheville, NC. Gould received a BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2015, apprenticed with master craftsmen in California, and was a 2015 Ox-Bow Fellow. He was an artist-in-residence at Kickstarter’s Headquarters in 2017 and at Queenslab in New York City in 2018. He is a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant recipient, a 2019 Haystack Open Studio Resident, a 2020 Lighton International Artists Exchange Program grant recipient, and a 2021 NYFA Fellow in Interdisciplinary Work.
