In 2014, as part of the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum’s 50th anniversary celebration, I presented a solo exhibition titled If You Steal a Horse, and Let Him Go, He’ll Take You to the Barn You Stole Him From. My work has been shown in biennials at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, in 2012, and at the Whitney Museum of American Art, in 2004. In 2002, I was awarded a solo exhibition and the Artist’s Prize from the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston. I have participated in group exhibitions at venues across the U.S. and abroad, including White Columns (New York, NY), Office Baroque Gallery (Antwerp, Belgium), Austin Museum of Art (Austin, TX), UTS Gallery (Sydney, Australia), and the Tang Teaching Museum (Saratoga Springs, NY); and worked with curators including Jessica Morgan, Debra Singer and Richard Klein. Articles and reviews of my exhibited work have appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Art in America, Artforum, The Boston Globe, and The Boston Herald. Fellowships and grants have opened new directions and possibilities for my artistic practice. I recently received a fellowship through the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study (2010-2011). The Radcliffe Fellowship year provided me with the time and resources to expand established practices, such as a series of text drawings, and to explore new structures and ideas. During my year at Radcliffe I developed “text cylinders”, a form I continue to work with. In 2010 I also received an Anonymous Was A Woman Grant. Other grants and awards include two Association of International Art Critics Awards (2007 and 2002), a St. Botolph Foundation Grant (2003), the Institute of Contemporary Art Artist Prize (2001), and a Massachusetts Cultural Council Grant (1999). In addition to material support, I am grateful for the opportunities that these fellowships and grants provide to learn from scholars, scientists, and artists from many disciplines.
