Guided tour with artist Jay Heikes.
Jay Heikes (b. 1975; lives and works in Minneapolis) makes sculptures, paintings, installations – typically combining materials with almost alchemical operations – that activate stories, puns, and irony as forms of meditation. Heikes has had solo museum exhibitions at the Joslyn Art Museum, Omaha, Nebraska; UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, California; Aspen Art Museum, Colorado; Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia; and P.S.1. Contemporary Art Center, New York; among others. Recent gallery exhibitions include Boesky East and Marianne Boesky, New York; Federica Shiavo Gallery, Milan; Grimm Gallery, Amsterdam; and Reserve Ames, Los Angeles. His work is in the permanent collections of the BAMPFA, Berkeley, CA; Joslyn Art Museum, Omaha; New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York; and Walker Art Center, Minneapolis.
