BIOGRAPHY

Corin Hewitt combines the sculptural and the theatrical, the photographic and the performative and the personal with the public to create work that infuses the present with the material accumulations of the past. Using a variety of processes from casting, photography, and cooking, to model making, the breadth of Hewitt’s work ranges from a monumental cast rainbow made of street sweepings to intimate indoor performances using photography to explore material process. Corin Hewitt holds a BA from Oberlin College and attended both the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Kunste, Karlsruhe (Germany) and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Maine before receiving his MFA from Milton Avery School of the Arts at Bard College.

Hewitt has exhibited widely throughout the United States and Europe. His most recent solo exhibition "Medium/Deep" was featured by his reprsenting gallery Laurel Gilen in New York.  In the Summer of 2008, Hewitt’s work was included in the exhibition Meet Me Around the Corner  at the Astrup Fearnley Museum in Oslo, Norway. His previous three solo exhibitions were with Taxter & Spengemann Gallery in New York in 2005 and 2007 and with Small A Projects  in Portland, Oregon in 2007.  Within that time he has been included in Wanas 2006: 8 American Artists at the Wanas Foundation in Malmo Sweden; Material World, The Public Art Fund at MetroTech Center, Brooklyn; The New City: Sub/Urbia in Recent Photography, Whitney Museum of American Art; Consequences,  Museum 52, London, England, Art and Transport, Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum, Santa Barbara, CA, Atlas of the Unknown, curated by Tina Kukielski, small A projects, in Portland; Bebe le Strange, at D’Amelio Terras Gallery, New York. His work is also held in a wide variety of public collections including the Astrup Fearnley Museum in Oslo, Norway and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.  Hewitt had a well reviewed solo exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art in late 2008. His next major exhibition will be at the Seattle Museum of Art from April 4–August 23, 2009. A new book, WEAVINGS: Performance #2 (Portland, OR) with texts by Michael Brenson and Marisa Sanchez was released in April 2009.
