Born in 1985, Daniel Shea has lived and worked in Long Island City, Queens for five years. He studied at the Maryland Institute College of Art and later the University of Illinois at Chicago and has taught on several North American art programmes. His work has been exhibited throughout Europe and the United States, and books are a key element of his practice; previous publications include the now out of print Blisner, IL of 2014 and Warehouse Condo of 2016.
Daniel Shea has been awarded the Foam Paul Huf Award 2018 for the series of works published in the book 43-35 10th Street.
Daniel Shea is acutely aware of his role within the operation of neoliberalism.
Shea is based in Long Island City, from where he has observed the rapacious
processes of recent real estate development. This book moves us from the end and edges of built community to its inner-city nascence.
It combines observations from Shea’s neighbourhood with impressions from the Modernist icon Brasilia and the arid Searles Valley in the American West. These are
contrasted and superimposed.
