Dylan Gauthier is a Brooklyn-based artist who works through a research-based and collaborative practice centered on experiences of nature, architecture, landscape, and social change in a time of ecological crisis. Gauthier is a founder of the boat-building and eco-art publishing collective Mare Liberum and of the Sunview Luncheonette, a co-op for art, politics, and communalism in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. His individual and collective projects have been exhibited at the Centre Pompidou, Musée national d’art moderne (Paris), Parrish Art Museum, CCVA at Harvard University (Cambridge), the 2016 Biennial de Paris (Beirut), the Center for Architecture (New York), The International Studio and Curatorial Program (NY), EFA Project Space, and other venues in the US and abroad. His writings about art and public space have been published by Contemporary Art Stavanger, Parrish Art Museum, Urban Omnibus, Art in Odd Places, and Routledge/Public Art Dialogue, among others. In 2015 he was the NEA-supported Ecological Artist-in-Residence at the International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP); in 2016 he was a Socrates Sculpture Park Emerging Artist Fellow (NY), and this year he is the inaugural Artist-in-Residence at the Brandywine River Conservancy and Museum of Art, where his solo project highwatermarks is on view from October 2017 to January 2018. He co-curated (with Kendra Sullivan) the exhibition Resistance After Nature at Haverford College in spring of 2017. Gauthier received his MFA in Integrated Media Arts from Hunter College, CUNY (‘12).
