Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Considered a pioneer of the Post-Minimal and Conceptual art movements, Bochner is best known for his exploration of connections between language, perception and meaning. He began making prints in the early 70′s and printmaking has remained for him an essential medium for experimentation. His works can be found in collections from around the world including the MOCA in Los Angeles, the Musée National d’Art Moderne in Paris as well as the Whitney Museum of American Art and Museum of Modern Art in New York.
