Formerly Chicago-based Hirsch Perlman (born 1960) currently lives and works in Los Angeles. He is known for simple, witty, and self-reflexive photographs and videos. Intensely studio-driven, his work is often created in the spirit of isolated, homespun, nineteenth-century experiments and accidental discoveries. Indeed, in his art, Perlman cultivates the aura and mystery of a mad scientist. He has exhibited at the Renaissance Society, Chicago; Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston; Serpentine Gallery, London; the Whitney Biennial, New York City; and is participating in the 1993 Venice Biennale. Perlman currently teaches at the University of California, Los Angeles. He earned a BA from Yale University.</
