Wheaton Conversations: Brett Swenson

Wheaton Conversations: Brett Swenson

Watch the October 19, 2023 recording above

Meet artist Brett Swenson during the next Wheaton Conversation episode! He makes videos and objects that explore the felt mechanics of seeing and perceiving. He’s especially interested in the sticky relationship between surfaces and interiors, and in how these elements can physically rework each other to create new and relationally expressive forms.

His most recent work takes inspiration from ordinary things like baskets and logs. Brett is based in Chicago, and has exhibited both nationally and internationally. He earned a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA from the University of Chicago. He is currently a Lecturer in the Art Department at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
