Piotr Szyhalski

Born in Poland, 1967. Lives in USA.


Piotr Szyhalski has in the past decade established the Labor Camp, an ongoing art project that includes interactive components (digital and physical), original music, performances,videos, printed ephemera, texts, a blog, and an archive of online resources. Moving between fine arts (painting, photography, drawing, installation), media art, sound, and design, Szyhalski’s multilayered works often explore communication/exchange, extreme historical phenomena and relationships between the individual and society/history/time. His work has been exhibited worldwide at such venues as the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Siggraph;ISEA Paris; the New York Expo Film Festival; the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago; the New School in New York; the Minneapolis Institute of Arts; the San Jose Museum of Art; Experimenta Design, Lisbon. Pieces are in the collections of the Walker Art Center, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and others. Szyhalski is currently a professor of media arts at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design,and the recipient of the 2009–2010 McKnight Artist Fellowship for Visual Artists.
