Igor Josifov becomes the sixth person in a succession of artists who have taken up residence at the Yellowstone Art Museum’s Visible Vault located t 505 N. 26th St. directly east of the main museum building. He will have the distinction of becoming the first international artist to serve in the museum’s residency program, which provides gallery space to visual artists focused upon works in a wide range of disciplines. While in residence, artists spend a portion of their time interacting with museum visitors who desire deeper knowledge about their work and experience.
Born in Kavadarci, Macedonia, Igor typically splits his time between San Francisco and New York. He studied at the School for Applied Arts, Skopje, Macedonia, before graduating from the Academy of Art at San Francisco University in California. He is best known for multi-disciplinary figurative works that he performs and exhibits internationally.
During his residency, Igor will finalize preparations for his upcoming exhibition, Taming Fire, which will be on view at the Northcutt Steele Gallery on the campus of Montana State University Billings, February 20 – March 20, 2014. His residency at the YAM runs February 3 – 28.
