Brian Fridge (born 1969 in Fort Worth, Texas) is an American video artist. He earned a bachelor in fine arts from the University of North Texas, and a master's degree in fine arts from the University of Texas at Dallas.[1] In both 2005 and 2009, Fridge was a resident at CentralTrak, the University of Texas at Dallas artist residency.[2]

Exhibitions include the inaugural 2005 edition of the Turin Triennial [3] at the Castello di Rivoli - Museo d’Arte Contemporanea in Turin, Italy and the 2000 Biennial Exhibition [4] of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. His work is also exhibited in the Whitney Museum of American Art.[5]

His work has been described as "very Zen and wry".[6] A typical work is Vault Sequence (1995), recorded in the artist’s own apartment, the video “seems instead to have come directly from the Hubble telescope".[7] Brian Fridge's low-tech, poetic approach has a precedent in Arte Povera and his explorations of symbol and process are reminiscent of alchemy.
