Bio

Skye Gilkerson is an interdisciplinary artist based in New York, with roots on a fourth-generation farm in South Dakota. Her work in sculpture, installation, photography, film, and collage often playfully compares human timescales with celestial cycles, and has been shown at the Pensacola Museum of Art, the Contemporary Museum of Baltimore, and FLAG Foundation in New York. She was awarded a Chenven Foundation grant, a Smack Mellon Studio Fellowship, and artist residency grants with the La Napoule Art Foundation in La Napoule, France, and Tilleard Projects on Lamu Island, Kenya. Gilkerson’s solo exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art was listed by the Baltimore Sun as one of the Top Ten Art Shows of the Year. Her work is featured in the Robert L. Pfannebecker Collection, the Vanderbilt University Collection, and many personal collections in the US and Germany. She received her MFA in Sculpture from Cranbrook Academy of Art.
