Jeremiah Day

Jeremiah Day graduated from the University of California in Los Angeles and from 2003-4 attended the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam. From 2000-2002 he was artist-in-residence at Beyond Baroque Literary Art Center in Los Angeles.  Recent group exhibitions includeStorytellers, Frac Champagne-Ardenne, Jeremiah Day / Simone Forti / Fred Dewey, Ludlow 38, New York and solo exhibitions in Amsterdam with Ellen de Bruijne Projects.     

Day is currently doing PhD research: A kind of imagination that has nothing to do with fiction, Allan Kaprow and Hannah Arendt and a practice for a new publicness of art, 2011-2016.

 Can contemporary art contribute to the political debate? How can current art practise realize its ambition to play a significant role in public life? Can the new field of research in the arts be used as a renewal of the content of visual arts, or will it turn out to be just another form of instrumentalization of the arts? With Kaprow and Ahrendt as examples and guides, this research project will develop through concrete artistic and discursive projects in the public realm: speculative insights will lead to practical experiments that in turn will form the basis of a new way of thinking.
