Episode Info:

Stephen Eakin’s recent work explores the connection between objects and their associated meanings, and how the context for that meaning comes to exist. He uses personal narratives, traditions and experiences to consider our intimate attachment to such things and how they engage with the politics of historical significance. Stephen has had solo exhibitions at the AC Institute in Chelsea NY; Bellocq Gallery in Ruston LA; Thomas Hunter Project Room in NY; and Sheppard Fine Arts in Reno, NV. Selected group exhibitions include Honey Ramka, Yashar Gallery and Bushwick Open studios in Brooklyn; E. Tay Gallery; AC Exhibition Space; Pelham Art Center; and the Art Factory. His art has been written about in Hyperallergic, Art F City, The Huffington Post and Art Slant. He has been an artist in residence at Kitchen Budapest, HU and received the Ellis Art Award and a Brown-MacKenzie Art Scholarship. He holds a BFA from the University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA and an MFA from the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.
