David Baumflek is a visual artist living and working in New York and Montreal. His work crosses genre and medium to evoke intellectual and affective responses from viewers. In addition to video, his practice includes sculpture, installation, and performance. Through their emotional and political investigations of everyday objects and spaces, his works combine the sparse formal economy of Minimalism with an interest in political and aesthetic theory.
Baumflek's sculptural and performance work has been exhibited in venues such as Exit Art, Sculpture Center, Wilson Art Museum, Cuchifritos and Art in General. His video work has been shown in festivals and art spaces including Anthology Archives (New York), Festival du Nouveau Cinema (Montreal), VideoEx (Zurich), Australian Experimental Film Festival (Melbourne), ATA festival (San Francisco) and others. After receiving an MFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, Baumflek was a fellow in the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program in New York in studio art.
