By adopting the roles of image gatherer, entrepreneur, documentarian, object-maker, and organizer, Joseph Wilcox explores how institutional control, political systems, and social power structures undermine individual & collective autonomy. He was the co-founder of LDOC, a free yearlong arts publication distributed on the Red Line train in Chicago; an artist-in-residence at the NARS Foundation, Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, HATCH Projects at the Chicago Artists Coalition, and LATITUDE Chicago; and the first place winner of The Blooom Award by Warsteiner. Solo and two-person exhibitions include Good Children Gallery (New Orleans, LA), Chicago Artists Coalition (Chicago, IL), and The Rangefinder Gallery (Chicago, IL). He received his MFA from Lesley University College of Art and Design and his BFA from Kendall College of Art and Design. He lives and works in Brooklyn.
