He has shown and performed his work at venues in New York and beyond including the ISE Cultural foundation, Smack Mellon, Flux Factory, AS 220, The Museum of the Moving Image and the Coney Island Museum.
In spring of 2010, Yulman was artist in residence at the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowsky Castle in Warsaw, Poland through Art in General’s Eastern European Residency Exchange Program. He recently received a NYSCA grant to produce a record documenting the work created during this residency to be released later this year. Yulman is currently working with the North Brooklyn Public Art Coalition to create No Bills, a public sound installation, located in construction fences throughout Greenpoint and Williamsburg Brooklyn, that will present oral history interviews recorded with longtime residents of the two neighborhoods.
Professionally, Yulman spent five years working with the national oral history project StoryCorps, traveling the United States recording interviews, managing the organization’s Recording and Archive department and consulting on a variety of projects. He received a BA in Studio Art and English from Wesleyan University and is currently a student at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunication Program.
