Jim Hodges was born in 1957 in Spokane, Washington and received his MFA from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Since the late 1980s, Hodges has created a broad range of work exploring themes of fragility, temporality, love and death utilizing a highly original and poetic vocabulary. His works frequently deploy different materials and techniques, from ready-made objects to more traditional media, such as graphite, ink, gold leaf and mirrored elements. Charting both the overlooked and obvious touchstones of life with equal attention and poignancy, Hodges’ conceptual practice is as broad and expansive as the range of human experiences he captures.
Hodges has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions at venues across the United States and Europe including the Centre Pompidou, Paris; Camden Art Centre, London; the Aspen Art Museum; CGAC, Santiago de Compostela, Spain; Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, NY; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. He has also been included in various significant group exhibitions, including the 2004 Whitney Biennial. Hodges served as the acting director of the Graduate Sculpture Department at the Yale University School of Art for the 2011/2012 academic years. He is the recipient of several prestigious awards including the Association Internationale des Critiques d’art in 2006, the Albert Ucross Prize in 2001, and The Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award in 1995.
Hodges currently lives and works in New York City.
