Joseph Wilcox (b. 1984) is an artist living and trying to not work in Chicago. Adopting the roles of image gatherer, entrepreneur, documentarian, curator, object maker, and organizer, his practice explores how institutional control and social power structures undermine the autonomy of the individual. He was most recently the co-founder of LDOC, a free yearlong arts publication distributed on the Red Line train in Chicago, an artist-in-residence at LATITUDE, and a HATCH Projects resident. He received his BFA from Kendall College of Art and Design and his MFA from Lesley University.
