Artist and curator

Gellinoxious van Wicklebunz (b. 1984, NYC) is an S.P.Y. artist and educator, based in Rotterdam and working in music, performance, narrative sculpture, and video.

They just came out with their record ATM FM (2020), recorded in Rotterdam and released through Muck Studies Dept. - a constellation of inherited diasporic/American funk and folk poetics and investigative journalism. The project connects mud, water, metal, gas, ass, rocks, coins, extractive industry, deep coloniality, and sensual expression of belonging, but is also an imaginary city agent surveying the bottom of low lying water areas, “looking for stars out of what stinks.” The project has appeared in many forms including public performance, video, poetry, music, and installation, with research in New Orleans, New York, and the Netherlands.

Gellinoxious van Wicklebunz have shown work at the New Museum, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, MoMA PS1 (Greater New York 2016), Dutch National Opera, Triangle France, Anthology Film Archives, The Kitchen, TENT (Rotterdam), Arsenic (CH), Biquini Wax (CDMX), LA MoCA, New York Live Arts, The Studio Museum in Harlem, Boston ICA, La MaMa Theatre, Human Resources, The Pyramid Club, Joe’s Pub, and many others. They are co-founder of the queer social space Tender Center in Rotterdam. They have composed music for the artist narrative shorts Happy Birthday Marsha!, Atlantic is a Sea of Bones, Salacia, and The Personal Things, and many others.

The artist was a Rijksakademie resident in 2015-2016, teaches at the Dutch Art Institute (DAI) and the Willem de Kooning Akademie, and in 2021, was nominated for the Dolf Henkes Art Prize.
