Andy Coolquitt was born in Texas in 1964, and currently lives in Austin. Next Spring he will open a solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara, in California. In the Summer of 2016, he produced a multi exhibition project titled Studio Art………..Period Room, while in residence at Artpace in San Antonio TX. In September 2014, Coolquitt presented his fourth solo exhibition at Lisa Cooley, Somebody Place. In April and May of 2014, Coolquitt was artist-in-residence at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas, which culminated with an exhibition, Multi-Marfa Room, at the Locker Plant in Marfa. In the Spring of 2014, Coolquitt had two major solo exhibitions, including This Much at Galerie Krinzinger in Vienna, Austria, and no I didn’t go to any museums here I hate museums museums are just stores that charge you to come in there are lots of free museums here but they have names like real stores at Maryam Nassir Zadeh in New York. Coolquitt is perhaps most widely known for a house, a performance/studio/domestic space that began as his Master’s thesis project at the University of Texas at Austin in 1994, and continues to the present day.
