Jeremiah Hulsebos-Spofford approaches his practice as a conduit into many worlds, intervening in spheres of activism, art discourse, education, science fiction fandom, and equine technology. Recently he attended Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and received an MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago and a BFA from Bard College in New York. He is a Fulbright grantee and the recipient of numerous awards, including an Illinois Arts Council Project Grant, a CAAP grant, and a grant from the Propeller Fund. He was recognized by NewCity as one of Chicago’s Breakout Artists to watch in 2012.
Chicago-based Jeremiah Hulsebos-Spofford, was in our studios for one year, using the residency to develop a large-scale installation for his solo exhibition, Hall of Khan, on view in the Art Center’s main gallery between April and July of 2013. Hulsebos-Spofford noted that “Hall of Khan is my first large-scale solo show and without the space that The Residency has afforded—both mental and physical—my body of work would be far less ambitious.”
