Mads Lynnerup is an artist and educator, whose practice incorporates video, performance, printmaking, and installation and changes based on the idea and the project. Lynnerup’s work is influenced by societal and economic topics and is a commentary in its own playful manner on everyday experiences as well as tendencies and trends within the art world. Most recently, Lynnerup developed a series of sculptures that—besides their sculptural form—also functioned as fitness instruments; the project culminated in a video commissioned by Creative Time, PS.1 and MTV in New York.
Lynnerup received an MFA from Columbia University in New York City and a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. He has an extensive national and international exhibition record and has been included in exhibitions at SFMOMA; The Mori Art Museum, Tokyo; P.S. 1, New York; Zacheta National Gallery of Art, Warsaw; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; and Kunsthalle Fridericianum, Kassel, Germany. He is a Eureka Fellowship recipient as well as an Artadia and Toby Devan Lewis Award winner. Lynnerup teaches undergraduate and graduate courses at the San Francisco Art Institute.
