Jules Koreman is a sculptor based out of their hometown, Chicago. They create movable sculptures comprised of large frames made from construction materials, such as 2x4’s, foam, or steel. These frames are manipulated by their connecting hinges to explore instability and architecture through audience interaction. Their practice embraces ambiguity and “middleness” reinforcing their nonbinary gender identity and working class politics.
Jules is completing their MFA at the University of Chicago and received a BA in Studio Art and Chemistry from Kalamazoo College. Their work has been exhibited at Hyde Park Art Center, South Shore Cultural Center, New York Arts Program, and Stay Home Gallery. They have attended ACRE Residency, Bridge Program Residency at Hyde Park Art Center, and Field/Work Residency at Chicago Artists Coalition. Their curational projects include: “It Be Like That Sometimes” at Hyde Park Art Center and “TBD… Nevermind” at Kalamazoo College Light Fine Arts gallery. This summer, they are returning to ACRE Residency's Staff Session and planning to grow a vegetable garden on their balcony.
