Candice Lin received her MFA in New Genres
at the San Francisco Art Institute and her double BA in Visual Arts and Art
Semiotics at Brown University.
Lin’s work engages notions of gender, race and sexuality through
examining discrepant bodies, transformation and mutation, hybridization and
disobedience, within the fields of
science, anthropology, queer theory, and marginalized histories.
Lin’s work has been recently exhibited at the Kadist Art
Foundation in Paris, the Delfina Foundation in London, La Maison Populaire in
Paris, and Alhondiga Bilbao, Spain with recent solo exhibitions this year at
Francois Ghebaly Gallery (Los Angeles) and CAAA (Guimaraes, Portugal). Lin has been awarded several residencies and
grants including the Artist Lab Residency at 18th Street (2015), the 2014
California Community Foundation Emerging Artist Fellowship, the Fine Arts Work
Center Residency (2012), the Frankfurter Kunstverein Deutsche Borse Residency
(2011), and the Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship (2009). She is
