Josiah McElheny was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1966, and lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. He received a B.F.A. (1989) from the Rhode Island School of Design and was an apprentice to master glassblowers Jan-Erik Ritzman, Sven-Ake Carlsson, and Lino Tagliapietra. Recipient of a 2006 MacArthur Fellowship, McElheny has had numerous exhibitions at museums in the U.S. and abroad, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio, and the Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. His upcoming exhibition at the ICA Boston, Josiah McElheny: Some Pictures of Infinity, will be the artist’s first U.S. museum survey.
