About the Artist
Man Bartlett is a multidisciplinary artist based in New York. His works encompass a vast range of different mediums including sound, drawing, collage, video, performance, and digital projects.
His past projects have been exhibited or performed in venues such as The Barnes Foundation (Philadelphia), The V&A Museum (London), his bedroom, The Brooklyn Museum, a Best Buy store, Freies Museum (Berlin), Eyebeam (New York), Flux Factory (Long Island City), iMOCA (Indianapolis), Port Authority Bus Terminal, The Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, Winkleman Gallery, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among many others.
Focusing on blurring the line between process and life, and creation, and what it means to be living in this digital and/or post-digital age, Bartlett works primarily within the hybrid medium of ‘Social Media Art’. He investigates notions of identity and simulacra using both online and physical audiences, often within a durational, performative framework. ‘His practice is, additionally, deeply concerned with labor intensive drawings that are often pigeon-holed and inconsiderately mislabeled as “obsessive.”‘
