DIRECTOR + CO-CREATOR
Bill Jones is a photographer and installation artist. His work in all media is concerned with the subject of light as physical phenomena and metaphorical figure. It inhabits the liminal spaces created by the conjunction of performance, installation and object art. Jones was a seminal figure in the Vancouver School of conceptual photography, along with such artists as Rodney Graham, Ian Wallace and Jeff Wall.
His recent exhibition, along with musician collaborator Ben Neill, premiered a new chapter in the development of midi-controlled video. Entitled Nite Nite, it took place at Sandra Gering Gallery, New York City, Spring 2003.
Bill Jones has had a distinguished career as a writer and editor. Previously the managing editor of Arts Magazine, in 1998 he conceived and founded Artbyte: The Magazine of Digital Culture, which he edited for its first two years.
Past solo exhibitions include Bill Jones : A Survey, Vancouver Art Gallery, Bill Jones : Ten Years of Multiple Image Narratives, International Center of Photography, New York, Metaphysical Metaphors, High Museum, Atlanta, Bill Jones: Willed Photographs 1987-1997, Koffler Center, Toronto.
