Candice Lin

Candice Lin draws from multiple disciplines to unearth largely forgotten or disregarded histories and to highlight practices that have been marginalized or discredited. She has created large-scale installations of elaborate systems in which fluids—such as kombucha or water dyed red with pigment from the cochineal insect—are drawn through tubes connecting an assortment of vessels or diverted to a surface where they pool into large stains. Her interest in the legacies of colonization and the attendant fictions relating to authenticity, purity, and birthright has led her to explore how specific natural materials and goods are given value and how they circulate through global trade routes.


Born in Concord, Massachusetts, in 1979, Lin received her BA in both visual arts and semiotics from Brown University, in 2001, and MFA in New Genres from San Francisco Art Institute, in 2004. She currently lives and works in Altadena, California. Lin's work has been at the New Museum and the SculptureCenter in New York, the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, Portikus in Frankfurt, and Gasworks in London, among others. She is currently represented by François Ghebaly.
