Bodett lives and works in Chicago as an artist and mad/disability advocate. Drawing from lived experience he utilizes artwork to explore and critique visual culture and its role in stigma. Having gone to school in Boise, Idaho Bodett moved to Chicago in 2013 to have a more serious studio practice. Since then, he has exhibited art, performance, and poetic works at cultural institutions like Steppenwolf theater and The Poetry Foundation in Chicago, The Freud Museum in London, and for the No Limits festival in Berlin. Aside from a full-time studio practice, Bodett has also opened "PRESS HERE: Center for Mad Culture" in Chicago, which explores the cultural and aesthetic possibilities of madness. He teaches for Loyola University Chicago and Columbia College Chicago, while also serving on the advisory board for the Institute for Therapy through the Arts, on the Artists Counsel for 3Arts.
