William Kofmehl III, a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native and sculptor, graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts preceding a fifth year scholarship to study civil engineering. Kofmehl then attended Yale University, obtaining a Master of Fine Arts Degree.
Kofmehl is currently represented by Lombard-Freid Projects in New York City. He has performed internationally, conducting solo performances and installations at the Kunsthalle Winterthur, Winterthur Switzerland, Art Nova Sector of Art Basel Miami, Imperial College, London, Temple of Apollo, Greece, Cloud Forest Reserve in Monteverde, Costa Rica, and FIAC in Paris, France. His complex installations built of wood, steel, bronze and hand-embroidery act as a staging ground for multiple performers where, routinely, Kofmehl himself lives and dwells within the installation for the entire length of the exhibit.
Kofmehl has held adjunct Professorial appointments at the Pont-Aven School of Contemporary Art, France, Carnegie Mellon University, University of Pittsburgh, and Robert Morris University.
Future exhibitions include participation in the Hong Kong International Art Fair and the Factory Direct Show curated by Eric Shiner, Pitt Alum (BPhil 1994), Director of the Andy Warhol Museum.
