Lynn's profile

Lynn Cazabon is an artist whose practice spans from a foundation in analog photography to projects that incorporate printed and virtual photographic images, audio, video, and virtual and augmented reality within socially engaged contexts. Her multifaceted projects are scalable, site-specific, and often involve participation of specific communities of people. In order to reach a wide and diverse audience, she seeks alternative ways to disseminate her work to the public using, for example, transit system displays, print and digital billboards, exterior installations, and mobile phone applications. Her recent projects are focused on the interface between environmental and social issues, intersecting with disciplines such as ecology, botany, and psychology.

Her work has been exhibited internationally in solo and group exhibitions, including with Witte Rook (Breda, the Netherlands), Maryland Center for History and Culture (Baltimore, MD), National Museum of Contemporary Art (Bucharest, Romania), Tsung-Yeh Arts and Cultural Center (Tainan, Taiwan), WRO Art Center (Wrocław, Poland), Govett-Brewster Art Gallery (New Plymouth, New Zealand), The Mattress Factory (Pittsburgh, PA), Artists Space (New York, NY), Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center (Buffalo, NY), the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center (Atlanta, GA), and with the Art in Embassies Program (Muscat, Oman). Her work has been featured and written about in numerous reviews, exhibition catalogs, and books.

She has received grants and fellowships from the Fulbright Scholar Program, Puffin Foundation, Franklin Furnace Archives, the Camargo Foundation, the Santa Fe Art Institute, the Point CDC, Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, MacDowell, and Yaddo. Locally, she has received grants from the Saul Zaentz Innovation Fund, Robert W.
