B. Wurtz was born in 1948 in Pasadena, California, and lives and works in New York. In 2015 he was the subject of a retrospective exhibition at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, United Kingdom. Wurtz is best known for standing and hanging sculptures from discarded common objects, like food wrappers, shoelaces, plastic bags, and locks. He says that the unremarkable quality of these materials is what attracts him.His work has been included in group exhibitions at MoMA PS1, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; and Musée d’Art Contemporain de Lyon. Currently Wurtz has a survey of his work at the ICA Los Angeles titled, "This Has No Name".
