Bill Jenkins

Bill Jenkins is an artist born in California and based in New York City. Jenkins received a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2003 and a MFA from the University of California at Berkeley in 2007. Recently Jenkins has built installations that involve the siphoning of light in interior spaces, treating light as both substantive and portable. Recent exhibitions have been at the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art in Portland, OR, and a collaboration with Chadwick Rantanen at Michael Thibault Gallery in Los Angeles. Other solo shows involving both light and sculptural works have been held at Laurel Gitlen and Feature Inc. in New York, and Jancar Jones in San Francisco. Jenkins’ work has been included in group shows at Feature Inc., James Cohan, Sekkima Jenkins & Co., and White Columns in New York, and Yvon Lambert in Paris. Reviews of Jenkins’ work have been published in Artforum and artforum.com, artinamericamagazine.com, Contemporary Art Review Los Angeles, The New Yorker and the San Francisco Bay Guardian among other sources. Currently Jenkins is developing a project with Freshkills Park on Staten Island and will have a solo exhibition at Galeria Stereo in Warsaw, Poland in September 2016.
