CSUB Todd Madigan Gallery presents
February 11- March 18, 2017
opening reception Saturday, February 11, 4-6 pm
Todd Madigan Gallery at CSU Bakersfield is pleased to present the most recent in a series of site-adaptive works that capture, reroute and represent light as material resource. These works draw inspiration from the pragmatism of ad hoc domestic interventions, as well as the ambition and conceptual rigor of major resource infrastructure.
Jenkins approaches the gallery not as an empty space, waiting to be filled with art, but instead as a territory already filled with light and space resources. Using commonly found materials such as plastic, mylar and lumber, the light entering the gallery will be captured and redirected through a series of conduit and dam-like structures. As a result, the gallery will become shrouded in darkness, and light will be focused and given sculptural form.
Bill Jenkins is an artist born in California in 1981 and based in New York City. Jenkins received a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2003 and a MFA from the University of California at Berkeley in 2007. Jenkins has had solo projects at Galeria Stereo, Warsaw, Poland, The Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, Portland, OR, Laurel Gitlen, New York, NY, and Feature Inc. New York, NY. Jenkins has also had two-person collaborative shows with Alina Tenser at The Suburban, Chicago, IL and with Chadwick Rantanen at Thibault & Sunder, Los Angeles, CA. Jenkins’ work has been included in group shows at Feature Inc., James Cohan, Sekkima Jenkins & Co., and White Columns in New York, NY, and Yvon Lambert in Paris, France. Reviews of Jenkins’ work have been published in Artforum and artforum.com, artinamericamagazine.com, Contemporary Art Review Los Angeles, The New Yorker and the San Francisco Bay Guardian among other publications. Jenkins is a 2015 Artadia Award winner in New York.

I am excited to arrive here at CSUB after a cross-country road trip from New England. I will be teaching courses on Asian Religions in our Religious Studies program. I received my doctorate in Asian Religions from Cornell University and my Masters in Divinity from the University of Chicago. I specialize in the religious culture and history of Sri Lanka, where I have traveled extensively.
I have a new article coming out on Buddhist extremism, and my book project treats the spread of Buddhist communities across South and Southeast Asia. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experiences with students and becoming an active member of the community here in Bakersfield.

I am excited to join the Department of History and the community here at CSUB!
I grew up on the east coast, in the city of Waterbury, Connecticut. I received my B.A. in history at New York University and then moved to Michigan, where I completed my PhD in history at the University of Michigan. I focus on United States history, and here at CSUB, I am teaching U.S. history classes, including courses in African American history and women's and gender history.
In my spare time, I enjoy swimming and hiking (great activities for California!) and watching baseball. I'm happy to meet with students interested in history, and hopefully I'll see you in one of my classes!
