Evelyn Rydz creates detailed drawings based on her photographs from various coastlines of lost and discarded objects that have washed ashore. Focused on the narratives these found objects have gathered on their journeys, Rydz explores the history and possible interconnection between these displaced objects. She has worked with drawing, photography, video and sound. Her recent works use found rope from East Coast shorelines to explore the paths of ocean currents around the globe. Selected exhibitions include: the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Anchorage Museum, Alaska, USC Fisher Museum, Los Angeles; Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, MA; DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, Lincoln, MA; Maseeh Hall, MIT, Cambridge, MA; Berliner Liste, Berlin, Germany; Julie Saul Gallery, NY; Brattleboro Museum, Vermont; El Parque Cultural del Caribe, Barranquilla, Colombia; Tufts University Art Gallery, Medford, MA; Joshua Liner Gallery, New York, NY; Ellen Miller Gallery, Boston, MA; La Otra: Feria de Arte Contemporáneo, Bogotá, Colombia. Rydz is the recipient of a Massachusetts Cultural Council Drawing Fellowship, a 2012 SMFA Traveling Fellowship, and a Bruce Dayton MassArt Faculty Foundation Fellowship. She received an MFA from SMFA in affiliation with Tufts University and a BFA from Florida State University. Rydz has led community art projects at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami.
