Corin Hewitt employs photography, video, performance, installation and sculpture in an ongoing investigation of objects and images as active and evolving events. His process centered approach engages both human and non-human systems in order to explore their transformative effects.  Hewitt received his BA from Oberlin College and his MFA from Bard College.  Solo exhibitions of his work include MOCA Cleveland, Whitney Museum of American Art, the Atlanta Contemporary Arts Center, the Seattle Museum of Art, and Western Bridge, Seattle. His work has been included in group exhibitions at the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, Oslo;  Extra City Kunsthal, Antwerp; the Memmo Foundation, Rome; the Sao Paolo Biennial in Brazil ; the Whitney Museum, New York; the Henry Art Gallery, Seattle; Galerie Perrotin, Paris; with the Public Art Fund in New York; and the Wanas Foundation in Sweden. Hewitt was a recipient of the 2014-5 American Academy Rome Prize, a Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship in 2011, and a Joan Mitchell Fellowship in 2010.  Last spring Mousse Publications released a 300-page monograph, entitled Seven Performances featuring six years of work in conjunction with his exhibition at MOCA Cleveland. Hewitt is represented by Laurel Gitlen Gallery in New York.
