OCTOBER 14, 2009–JANUARY 10, 2010

Through the use of various media including film, photography, video, drawing and writing, Buckingham's work investigates two main themes: history and time. Using these subjects, Buckingham evokes a personal connection or memory from the individual viewer. MCA Denver presented a major survey of his grippingly captivating projects; each project unfolded a story and produce reflections on the past, present and future. John Grant, curator of the exhibition, stated about the artist, "Buckingham questions how histories are created and investigates how data, documents and images are used to interpret and fabricate threads of understanding."

Matthew Buckingham lives and works in New York City. Born in 1963 and brought up in Iowa, Buckingham has recently been featured in solo shows at leading contemporary art institutions such as Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid, Spain, and P.S.1 in New York. He studied at the Art Institute of Chicago, received a BA from the University of Iowa in the renowned film production and film studies program, holds an MFA from Bard College and attended the Whitney Independent Study Program. His work has been seen in one-person and group exhibitions around the world, including at ARC / Musęe d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Paris; Camden Arts Centre, London; The Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; and The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. He was a 2003 recipient of the DAAD Artist in Berlin Fellowship.

 

This exhibition was curated for MCA Denver by John Grant, former Deputy Director of the museum. Grant had been following Matthew's work over the last 25 years and was captivated by the artist's ability to re-frame common perceptions of history, individuals and our place in time.

Sponsored in part by Noël & Tom Congdon and the Director's Vision Society.
