Information


Statement
Joshua’s work blurs the line between audience, artwork and performer, inviting the viewer to complete the art.  The action of entering into the art work as a participant generates a more authentic experience by suspending the social filters that we carry into the everyday life. Short uses cultural detritus as a point of departure. The inherited meanings found within caste off objects combined with his artistic sensibilities creates a altered space that frames contemporary American mythologies and rituals.

BIO
Josh Graduated with an MFA from UC Davis 2009. He was awarded a Joan Mitchell Foundation grant, and a graduate fellowship at The Headlands Center for the Arts in 2010.

Josh has been an resident artist at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, Yaddo, Joan Mitchell Center, and Crosstown Arts.
