Matthew C. Wilson is an American artist based between the Netherlands and Finland. In his videos, sculptures, and installations viewers meet a range of agents—mercurial materials, sites, non-humans, personae, and inter-subjective entities—that are entangled with natural processes and shape-shifting historical forces.

Wilson holds an MFA in Visual Arts from Columbia University. He has been a participant in the Whitney Independent Study Program and numerous residencies including the Jan van Eyck Academie and Skowhegan. In 2018 Wilson was Artistic Research Resident at Tabakalera in San Sebastián, ES. The resulting project was the Spectral.Exchange platform.

Wilson is currently a Visiting Researcher/Artist in Residence at Aalto University in Helsinki (see this interview about the research/project). Starting in the fall of 2020 he will teach in the temporary masters program “F for Fact” at Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam, NL.
