Alex Bienstock, 1987, grew up in West Orange, NJ but was born in NYC and now lives in Brooklyn. He works with images, objects, video, sound, curation, social media, text, books, and live performance, yet doesn’t really distinguish those things from everyday public and private life. He's released three books with Contain, Safety Propaganda, and Memory Pill and has been published in Art in America and Cultured Magazine, as well as participating in solo and group exhibitions all over the world, including Italy, UK, Germany, Switzerland, and Australia. He has also had a screening at Cinema Village in NYC. Attitude, collaboration, and the celebration of both aesthetic and non-aesthetic variety are his main priorities. His studio is placeless, his thoughts are nomadic, and his beliefs are heretical, 9/21/22.
