Form Fit: EJ Hill
400 South Peoria Street
EJ Hill is a Los Angeles-based artist known for his durational, physically demanding performances. Hill’s performances often possess an element of institutional critique or are direct in their address of politics around constructed identity and the body in gendered, racial and sexualized terms. Hill received his MFA from the New Genres program at UCLA in 2013 and obtained his BFA from Columbia College in Chicago. He is a 2012 recipient of the AAF Prize for Fine Arts and a 2015 nominee for the Rema Hort Mann Foundation Emerging Artist Grant. He has presented solo and group exhibitions at Commonwealth & Council, Los Angeles; Honor Fraser Gallery, Los Angeles; Grace Exhibition Space, Brooklyn; Little Black Pearl, Chicago; and Infernoesque, Berlin.
Form Fit is a lecture series organized by University of Illinois at Chicago MFA graduates in which local artists, curators, and other contemporary art practitioners present on their work. This series is free and open to the public.
