Brian Conley is an artist from New York currently living in San Francisco. From radio performance to sculptural, research-based, and collaborative installations, Conley’s artistic practice operates across the divides between science, art, and politics. Appearing as anatomical/architectural models or artifacts from some future time, his multimedia works deploy scientific speculation and political inquiry to construct new morphologies that humorously and provocatively challenge our perceptions of animality, technology, and consciousness. He has exhibited in Bitstreams at the Whitney Museum, Statements at ArtBasel, Becoming Animal at MassMoCA, as well as producing commissioned works in residence at Wanas Foundation in Sweden and the ArtPace Foundation for Contemporary Art in San Antonio. Recent projects include exhibitions at Pierogi Gallery in Leipzig, Germany, at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, and the Boiler, Pierogi Gallery, New York. Conley is founding co-editor with Sina Najafi of Cabinet Magazine, an international art-and-culture quarterly. From 2005 to 2008, he was Chair of the Graduate Fine Art Program at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco, where he is now a professor.
