Whitney Lynn

Adjunct Faculty
New Genres and MFA Faculty

Whitney Lynn mines cultural and political histories to question ideas of boundaries and containment, history and restaging, context and form. Through sculpture, performance, video, photography, drawing, and public projects, her work employs strategies of appropriation and has been exhibited at venues such as the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Torrance Art Museum, Exit Art, Corcoran Gallery of Art, Steven Wolf Fine Arts and Catharine Clark Gallery. Lynn will be an Artist-in-Residence at the de Young Museum in 2017 and is the 2016 National Artist-in-Residence at the Neon Museum in Las Vegas.
