Linda Herritt’s recent work transforms lists into poetry, working with text as image, content, and sound. Her lists note the bands playing one night in Brooklyn, a hierarchy of pain medications, the evocative names of lipstick colors, or Buckminster Fuller’s utopian pronouncements. Her installations and drawings have been exhibited in one and two person exhibitions at Smack Mellon and the Boiler (Pierogi), Brooklyn, New York; Valentine Gallery, Queens, New York; the Peter Fingesten Gallery, New York; 1K Project Space, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Pierogi, Brooklyn, New York; the San Francisco Art Institute, California; Florence Lynch Gallery, New York; The Frist Center for the Arts, Nashville, Tennessee; and Art&Idea, Mexico City, Mexico. She has exhibited in group shows at Pierogi in Brooklyn; the Drawing Center, New York; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver; Arti et Amicitiae, Amsterdam; and Galería OMR, Mexico City, among others. Fellowships include a Brooklyn Artists Fund Grant (2017), a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship (2015), a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, a Rockefeller Foundation Grant, and a NEA Sculpture Fellowship. In 2016, she was selected for a Workspace Residency at Dieu Donné in New York. She participated in the International Artist in Residence Program in Vienna, with US residencies at Yaddo, the MacDowell Colony, Art/Omi, and the Marie Walsh Sharpe New York Studio Program. Her work has been reviewed in The New York Times and Art in America. Linda Herritt teaches art at Pace University in Manhattan, and lives and works in Brooklyn.
