Since that time his work has been featured in over 160 gallery and museum exhibitions worldwide including at the Indianapolis Museum of Art (2008); Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans (2008); the Art Museum of South Texas, Corpus Christi (2007); the Chinati Foundation, Marfa (2005); the Centraal Museum, Utrecht, The Netherlands (2004); the 8th International Istanbul Biennial (2003); the Worcester Art Museum (2002); the Berkeley Art Museum (2002); the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College (2001), the Storefront for Art and Architecture, New York (2000); and the New Museum of Contemporary Art (1996).
