James Hyde was born in Philadelphia, and moved to New York City at eighteen years of age to pursue a career as an artist. His work ranges from paintings on photographic prints to large-scale installations, photography, and abstract furniture design. He is represented by galleries in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, and Copenhagen, and has been honored with a Guggenheim Fellowship and a Joan Mitchell Foundation Fellowship, among others. He has lectured as a visiting professor at a number of institutions, including Yale University, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Bard College, and Cooper Union. He lives and works in Brooklyn.
Each year Pratt Fine Arts invites contemporary artists to campus for a public lecture and to conduct studio visits with fine arts graduate students. This Visiting Artists Lecture Series (VALS) is coordinated by graduate student leaders. The aim is to provide our students with exposure to a wide array of artists working in a variety of fields at various stages in their career.
Pratt Institute’s Department of Fine Arts 2018/2019 Visiting Artists Lecture Series was made possible in part by a generous grant from The Robert Lehman Foundation.
