Biography


Patrick Killoran is an American artist who works in a variety of contexts and mediums. Since the mid 1990s, his work has addressed consumerism's effect on conceptions of public space. Much of his work explores the inevitable contradictions that arise with the terms "public space" and "public art," in the realm of the products and the behaviors of consumer culture. Killoran's pursuits have landed him in numerous international exhibitions, including Everyday, the 1998 Biennial of Sydney, Australia; Wanås 2000 at the Wanås Foundation in Sweden; The Part In The Story Where A Part Becomes A Part Of Something Else at the With de Witte in Rotterdam, Netherlands in 2014 and in 2018 the Queens International : Volumes at the Queens Museum, Queens, USA. He has presented solo projects at the Wadsworth Antheneum in Hartford, USA; Ikon in Birmingham, UK; Sculpture Center in Long Island City, USA and Studio10 in Brooklyn, USA. He has attended residencies at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and Civitella Ranieri in Umbertide, Italy. He has received grants from the Rema Hort Mann Foundation and the Penny McCall Foundation and has received fellowships from Northwestern University and George Washington University. From 2016 - 2018, he was a Collaborator at SOMA Summer.  He has been a Critic at Yale School of Art since 2012. In 2020, Killoran was a Part-time Lecturer at Iceland University of the Arts. Killoran lives and works in Queens, New York.
