A sculptor, performance and installation artist, filmmaker, curator, and writer,
Josiah McElheny holds a unique place in the contemporary art world. He is best
known for work that uses glass, but he also employs many other materials and
engages in collaborations with a wide variety of voices, from artists to art historians
and literary translators. His Brooklyn studio space includes both a furnace for
glassblowing and an extensive library. He is, in many ways, a conductor, commingling disciplines and gathering
artists, poets, writers, critics, musicians, dancers, and scientists to motivate his own work as well as theirs.
