Whitney Lynn
Visiting Faculty
New Genres

Whitney Lynn is visiting faculty in the New Genres department. Her project-based work combines elements of installation, sculpture, performance and video. Questioning ideas of containment, desire, and control, the work also explores the messy intersections between political, military, and civilian cultures. Her work has been exhibited at the Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, Catharine Clark Gallery, Patricia Sweetow Gallery, and Southern Exposure, San Francisco; Exit Art, New York; and the Headlands Center for the Arts in Sausalito, California.
