Matthew Schultz is a multi-media artist; musician, inventor, film maker, designer and sculptor. His bodies of work cover a wide range from political satire to the healing Mandala Event. As a musician, Schultz is most known as the inventor of the acclaimed A.T.G. or Anti Tank Guitar. In total, Schultz has appeared on over 35 CDs with 9 solo productions. He was a founding member of Pigface and Lab Report. He composed 2 feature film sound tracks for Hollywood director Bernard Rose. He also worked with renowned film maker Fernanda Rivero Gutierrez. Schultz has built the entire world of The Exhibition for the History of The Division. This farcical hermetic order was conceived by Schultz and then painstakingly built by hand. With life-sized wax figures to CDs, the exhibition is presented as a museum exhibition replete with text plaques and audio tours. Currently, Schultz is an instructor of digital arts. He continues to expand his Mandala Event as well as The Exhibition for the History of The Division.
The Buckminster Fuller Future Organization would like thank our co-sponsors Carbondale Community Arts, Morris Library’s Special Collections Research Center, the SIU Carbondale Student Programming Council, and our keynote speaker, Matt Schultz. We would also very much like to thank Gary Kolb and Marie Bukowski for donating their time and expertise as our art show’s jurists!
