Andrew Bordwin splits his time between art, commercial photography and video projects.
After his 17-year collaboration with Adam Ames (Type A) came to an end in January 2015, Bordwin is finding his way into a solo practice once again. While Type A’s focus was mainly on territory, masculinity, competition and collaboration, Bordwin’s solo direction is beginning to focus more on the intersection of observation and recording, using the two mediums he has explored the longest, drawing and photography.
His solo work is in several private, museum and corporate collections, including the Boston Museum of Fine Art, the Virginia Museum of Fine Art, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, The Gap, Morgan Stanley, and Pfizer,among others.
His work with Adam Ames in Type A has been exhibited extensively around the world, including at such institutions as The Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, The Indianapolis Museum of Art, The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum , The DeCordova Sculpture Park + Museum (Lincoln, MA), The Walker Art Center (Minneapolis, MN), Centrum Beeldende Kunst (Rotterdam, The Netherlands), Centro de la Imagen (Mexico City, Mexico), UCLA Hammer Museum (Los Angeles, CA) and The Johnson Museum at Cornell University (Ithaca, NY) in addition to many galleries. Hatje Cantz has published a monograph of their work. Bordwin has been on faculty at Parsons School of Design since 2002.
Bordwin’s recent venture into short moviemaking has brought him commissions from The Downtown Alliance, James Biber (Pentagram), Gensler Architects, Novartis, VCU Institute for Contemporary Art, Barker DZP and Tai Ping. To see Milkbox’s video work, click here to learn more.
