Bio and CV

Jeff Schmuki was raised in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona, an environment of extremes that nurtured a unique relationship to the fragile landscape and respect for our limited natural resources. He has exhibited and completed projects at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, Seoul Art Space_Geumcheon in Seoul, South Korea, the Goethe Institute of Cairo, Egypt, and the Bach Modern in Salzburg, Austria. In 2009, the collaborative PlantBot Genetics (www.monsantra.com) was co-founded with Wendy DesChene, and in 2010, works incorporating renewable power technologies and sound were created at the American Academy in Rome as visiting artists. Recent exhibitions by Jeff and PlantBot Genetics include Foodture at the Elaine L Jacob Gallery of Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan and PlantBot Genetics: a Critical Contact Exhibition Series at the Cafritz Foundation Arts Center in Takoma Park, Maryland, and artist lectures and studio visits at Long Island University in Brookville, New York.  Public projects while artists in residence at The Hafnarborg Art Center and Museum in Iceland and the McColl Center for the Arts in North Carolina gained invitations to the Landscape Laboratory at Buitenwerkplaats‏ in the Netherlands, the KulttuuriKauppila Art Center in Il, Finland as well as Marfa Dialogues/St. Louis at the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts in St Louis, Missouri.
