Richard Krueger maintains a diverse and exploratory artistic and intellectual practice, as a maker of images and objects, a curator, a community activist, and most recently, a fiction writer. His hybrid media installations and art objects have explored the manipulation of nature in the age of advanced imaging technology and genetic engineering, and have been featured in numerous venues, including SoFA Gallery at Indiana University, the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts, and Central Fine Arts in SoHo. His work has also been featured in the publication Human Nature, which includes the essay “Art On The Edge of Science.” Other artworks were spotlighted in the international catalog Photography in The 1990s. Krueger’s works are in the collection of the Museum of Contemporary Photography (Chicago) and the Snite Museum of Art. His curatorial projects, Digital Hybrids and Phantasmagoria: Art, Technology, and The Age of Spectacle, were commissioned by the McDonough Museum of Art and the Butler Institute of American Art, respectively. Krueger has received funding from the Indiana Arts Commission, the Ohio Arts Council, Gen America Foundation, Young Audiences corporate office, Ilford Corporation, ViaCom, and Youngstown State University. He was awarded a curatorial project from the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum, which featured the multichannel film installation American Night by German artist Julian Rosefeldt. Krueger is currently writing a work of fiction.
In the classroom, Krueger provides a critical landscape for students to develop and evaluate their own creative works. He teaches a seminar for first-year graduate students, plays an integral role in thesis advising, and is developing a new undergraduate course that examines the language of filmic images as they relate to various visual art forms.
