Matt Ledwidge was born in Toronto, Canada in 1994. He is an artist and designer working in the Graduate Program in Art, Culture and Technology in the Department of Architecture and Planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His work is built around particular geographic and historical sites and uses structural intervention, installation, image, and sound to engage with the conditions of knowledge and attention in the built environment. Past projects have focused on the transmission of historical information at the site of a particular work, investigating conditions of obfuscation, the production of after-images, and the psychosomatic implications of particular disclosures. His projects and exhibitions, often in collaboration have been presented at Gallery Elektrozavod, Moscow; 77 Vassar Street, Cambridge; The Shed, New York City; GGG Atelierhaus, Basel; Festung Hohensalzburg, Salzburg; Arts Letter & Numbers, Averill Park; and the Rietveld Pavilion, Amsterdam. He completed his undergraduate degree at the Cooper Union in New York.
