Brian Christopher Glaser is an interdisciplinary artist who lives and works in Boston, Massachusetts. His recent work in sculpture and collage breaks down images and symbols of idealized, muscular, heteronormative bodies. Influenced by the confusion of physical and virtual selfhood, of fantasy and reality that permeates popular culture, he makes work that converges on the concepts of longing, distance, destructive impulses, and the discovery and acceptance of pleasure.
Brian holds an MFA in Sculpture from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design and a BFA in Studio Art from Tulane University. He was the Managing Editor of Big Red & Shiny—a nonprofit arts organization and online art journal based in Boston that expands critical discourse and coverage of contemporary visual art to foster meaningful exchange within the Boston arts community and beyond—for 7 years before transitioning to its Board of Advisors. Brian is currently an Instructional Media Specialist in Sculpture and Digital Media and Instructor at the University of Massachusetts Boston, as well as a Lecturer at Lesley University College of Art and Design and is the Adjunct Professor of Grant Writing and Arts Administration at Stonehill College.
