Jeremy Bolen is a Chicago-based artist, researcher and educator interested in site-specific, experimental modes of documentation and presentation.

Bolen’s work is shown internationally. He has been an artist in residence at Ox-Bow School of Art and Artist’s Residency in Saugatuck, Michigan, The Center for Land Use Interpretation in Wendover, Utah, and Joshua Tree Highlands Artist Residency, California.
