Joel Perlman was born in New York City where he continues to work, as well as maintaining a studio in Watermill, New York. He began welding at Cornell University (BFA 1965) and then at the Central School of Art and Design, London, and the University of California, Berkeley (MA 1967). In the 1970-90’s he had numerous exhibitions at the seminal Andre Emmerich Gallery in New York. Perlman is the recipient of a John Simon Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, a National Endowment for the Arts grant, and a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Award. His work is included in important public and private collections including The Hirshorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington DC, The Los Angeles County Museum, California, The Whitney Museum of American Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

 

In addition to his rigorous studio practice, the artist is well known for his public and privately commissioned site-specific works. They include the ABN Amro Bank Building, Chicago, The IBM Corporation, Thornwood, New York, Grounds for Sculpture, Hamilton, New Jersey, the Storm King Art Center, Mountainville, New York, The 1980 Winter Olympics, Lake Placid, and the Ursukushi-Ga-Hara Open Air Museum, Japan.
