Often regarded as an experientialist, Lee Walton's work takes many forms – from drawings on paper, game/system-based structures, video and web-based performances to public projects, theatrical orchestrations and more. After a two-year affiliation with the Headlands Center for the Arts in Marin, Calif., Walton has received many accolades from museum-funded projects (Reykjavik Art Museum of Iceland, Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, SECCA, ICA Boston); public commissions (Art in General, Socrates Sculpture Park, Rhizome at the New Museum of NY); national and international exhibition venues (Island #6, Shanghia, China, Clubs Project Inc., Australia, Ljubljana Museum of Art); and collections (Metropolitan Museum of Art, Martin Z. Margulies Warehouse). Walton has also lectured extensively on his practice and related subjects. Recent lectures, panel discussions and visits include MIT, Art in General, The New School, Art Institute of Boston, Columbia, Portland State University and the University of Ulster in Belfast, Ireland. Walton holds an MFA in visual arts from the California College of the Arts. His drawings are represented by Kraushaar Gallery in New York and his conceptual work is represented by Christopher West Presents. Walton is an assistant professor of art at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
