Artist's Biography

Tyler Kline is a curator and artist living and working in Philadelphia. Kline grew up in Stone Mountain, GA, studied Architecture and Painting at the Savannah College of Art and Design. He received a BA in both Anthropology and Sculpture from Portland State University and an MFA in Installation and Sculpture from The Pennsylvania Academy of The Fine Arts.

Kline has worked in the sphere of urban interior and exterior intervention for two decades, beginning with creating skate-parks in unused urban spaces in Atlanta, to creating a sculpture garden in the shadows of re-purposed textile mills through Little Berlin in Philadelphia. He makes immersive installations and netart, and creates animated gifs as a way of exploring and constructing glitch theory. Kline’s own point of research within this field is to break the conceptual screen and expose the underlying, subjective, and internal forces that are imprisoned within them by late stage capitalism.

Kline has curated shows at: Atlanta’s Moving Spirits Gallery, Portland’s Martial Arts Gallery, Zeitgeist and Disjecta, as well as Philadelphia’s Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Little Berlin, Crux Space, and The University of the Arts. He is a strong believer in the power of art to revitalize communities and bring about social change; playing with the porous boundaries between painting, video, sculpture, performance, and printmaking fascinates him.

Kline’s curatorial work braids Visual Anthropology with cross-disciplinary aesthetics, with an interest in emerging media and scientific cross-pollination. Furthermore, Kline is a visual artist who has created installations in Portland, Atlanta, New York and Philadelphia, and exhibited at the Rebeka Templeton Cont., Little Berlin, MASS MoCA, Vox Populi, The Delaware Art Museum, Dumbo Art Center, The Armory, NYC, The Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia., Washington County Museum of Fine Art, The University of The Arts, The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, Portland State University, The Savannah College of Art and Design, New Bedford Art Museum, The Goethe Institute of San Francisco, and Disjecta in Portland, OR.

Artist's Statement

I explore instantiation—how our technologies cascade through our central nervous systems and etch marks in our flesh. My work documents the arrival of the Chthulucene epoch: post-Anthropocene, tentacular, multi-optic, and multi-specied.

In this novel terrain we consume and digest rapidly shifting currents of change, at velocities that thwart literal articulation. I generate forms to translate these vibrations and extract hyperbolic form from flickering ephemera, blurring the porous boundaries between myth, documentation, artifact and artifice.
