Alois Kronschlaeger

Alois Kronschlaeger was born in 1966 in Grieskirchen, Austria. He holds an MFA from The School of Visual Arts, and a BA from Empire State College. Kronschlaeger is best known for his site-specific installations and sculptures, which demonstrate a preoccupation with environment and light, as well as an interest in exploring time and space via geometry. His work has been exhibited internationally at institutions including the Bruce Museum (CT), the Yuan Art Museum (Beijing), and MOCA Tucson (AZ), where his installation Untitled (Basin and Range) took over the Great Hall of the museum. Since 2011, the artist has produced three site-specific installations with SiTE:LAB in Grand Rapids, MI, including Spire, which stretched over three stories tall, and Habitat, which was staged in the former Grand Rapids Public Museum. Most recently, he created Hybrid Structures in collaboration with Paul Amenta and Tedd Lott as part of the Rumsey Street Project. Kronschlaeger also partnered with SiTE:LAB to create the special installation 30° in Miami, FL. In 2016, Kronschlaeger will participate in the inaugural exhibition of PEANA Projects in Monterrey, Mexico; the Islamic Arts Festival; and the Special Projects sector at Untitled Art Fair Miami, where he will produce another version of Hybrid Structures in collaboration with Paul Amenta and Tedd Lott. He lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
