Scott Patrick Wiener (b. 1977 – Baltimore, MD) spent his early life traveling from one military base to another, never spending more than four years in one place. The work he produces is a direct result of an attempt to hold onto time and place – to stabilize it. He proceeds accordingly by using lens-based media to examine how place generates antagonistic points of reference for both public and private histories.
Wiener studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (MFA, 2007), the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (Class of 2010), and completed a 2009-10 DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) Scholarship for Fine Arts in Leipzig, Germany. He currently lives and works in Boston, MA.
Recent exhibitions include “Brink v1” at the Boston Center for the Arts (2014), “Distant Images, Local Positions” at the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts (2014), a solo exhibition at the 92Y Weill Gallery entitled “The Luxury of Distance” (2012), a group exhibition of the same name at Kunstverein Weiden in Germany (2012), and curatorial project entitled “All Our Tomorrows and Yesterdays” at Proof Gallery in Boston (2013). His work has been profiled and reviewed in Temporary Land Bridge, Afterimage, Hyperallergic, Big Red & Shiny, ARTnews, The Boston Globe, TimeOut Chicago, and Paper & Carriage.
He has been a guest lecturer, visiting critic, and panelist at several institutions including the Via Agency Portland (Skowhegan Conversation #7), Maine College of Art, Boston Center for the Arts (Panel on Itinerant Photography), University of California San Diego, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, University of Missouri Columbia, Tisch School of the Arts, NYU, Leipzig Universität, and MZIN Gallery Leipzig.
