“Some of the 72 participants in the Bronx Museum’s Artist in the Marketplace program from 2010 and 2011, all included in this two-site exhibition, will warrant keeping an eye on…[including] Matthew Conradt’s large, vaguely nightmarish collages picturing faceless figures in Cubist-Surrealist compositions.” – The New York Times (2011)
Matthew Conradt (b. 1983) is a Brooklyn-based artist. Conradt collages images collected through magazines, newspapers, and found photos from the Internet. He then combines, interrupts or obliterates the original images into paradoxically inviting and unnerving vignettes of a recent American past and present. His solo exhibitions include New Noise, Muriel Guepin Gallery, New York, NY (2015); Volta Contemporary Art Fair, solo presentation with Muriel Guepin Gallery, New York, NY (2014); and Years of Veneers, Muriel Guepin Gallery, New York, NY (2013). His group exhibitions include Somewhere Between, Art Helix, Brooklyn, NY (2015) and The Invitational, Kunsthalle Galapagos, Brooklyn, NY (2014). His residencies include Artist-In-the-Marketplace, The Bronx Museum, Bronx, NY (2010 – 2011); and Cooper Union School of Art, New York, NY (2008). Conradt holds a B.F.A from Iowa State University and an M.F.A from Pratt Institute.
