Friedman’s work is concerned with the residue of humanity—from God to garbage and how American cultural identity is constructed around signifiers with no inherent significance beyond what is ascribed to them.
Through sculpture, performance, photography, drawing, and video, he tackles how we internalize and filter the world through magical thinking, institutionalized religion, and consumer culture-primarily through the lens of humor.
Friedman has exhibited at numerous institutions including Crystal Bridges Museum of American, PS1/MoMA, Everson Museum of Art, Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts. A Pollock-Krasner recipient, he received his MFA from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts. Residencies include Skowhegan, MacDowell Colony, Fountainhead and Bemis Center. Publications include: New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Miami Herald. Collections include: Walker Art Center, Brooklyn Museum.
