Glen Fogel was born in 1977 in Denver, Colorado. He studied film/cultural studies at McGill University in Montreal before moving to New York in 1998. He will complete his MFA in Film/Video from Bard College this upcoming Spring, 2010.

Fogel began showing his film and video work shortly after his arrival to New York at local venues for contemporary avant-garde cinema, including Anthology Film Archives, Ocularis, and Exit Art. He was included in the Image Innovators series titled New Super 8 New York at the Lincoln Center in 2000, and had his first solo screening in early 2001 at The Robert Beck Memorial Cinema. In 2002, Fogel’s work was featured in the Whitney Biennial, as well as the Museum of Modern Art, The Toronto International Film Festival, and the London International Film Festival.

From that point onward, Fogel’s interest expanded into video installation and photography. He had his first solo gallery exhibition of video and photography at Galeria Andre Viana in Portugal in 2004. His work has been shown at the Grimm/Rosenfeld Gallery in Munich (2003), the NGBK in Berlin (2003), Andrew Kreps Gallery (2003), Artists Space (2005), Momenta Art (2006), Thomas Erben Gallery (2007), and The Kitchen (2008), among others.

In 2005, Fogel directed the music video “Hope there’s someone” for Antony and the Johnsons.

In 2006, Fogel won a MAP Production Grant with RoseAnne Spradlin Dance for “Survive Cycle", and in 2008 he was a recipient of the Rema Hort Mann Foundation Grant for Visual Art.
