About

Irish multidisciplinary artist George Bolster lives and works in NYC. His work -through oppositional narratives- addresses ideas and belief systems from multiple perspectives. In films such as Un/natural History: Drowning Captiva (addressing climate change, rising sea levels and Rauschenberg's environmental legacy) and The Moon, McMoon’s, and the Moon Museum (which focuses on the first art object in space, and long-term cultural preservation and conservation in the face of environmental disintegration), he uses a combination of science, history, and science fiction to examine our most prescient societal and species-wide challenges. He has exhibited in numerous museums and galleries in Europe, America and Canada. Bolster is a recipient of awards from the Irish Arts Council, Culture Ireland, and the Arts Council of England. He completed the Firestation International Artist’s Residency in 2012, and, in 2013 and 2017, he was given a residency award from the Rauschenberg Foundation. In 2019, he will begin the Centre Culturel Irlandais residency in Paris, France.
