Linda Ganjian is a NY-based artist who works in a variety of materials, from clay to cement to paper. She received her BA from Bard College and her MFA from Hunter College CUNY.
Her main pursuit has involved making large “table-top” sculptures comprised of hundreds of miniature forms that are a reinterpretation of Middle Eastern and American craft traditions (carpets, quilts, calligraphy). Much of her work presents memories and impressions of the urban landscape, the specific history of a site, or a more personal narrative.
Her work has been exhibited in New York and abroad. Exhibition include: Depo, Istanbul (2015); Auxiliary Projects (2013); Artspace, New Haven, CT (2009); National Academy of Design (Invitational 2008); Socrates Sculpture Park (EAF 2007); Queens Museum (Queens International 2006).
She has received grants from: the Queens Council on the Arts, Pollack-Krasner Foundation and fellowships to: MacDowell Colony, Hall Farm Center, Millay Colony and Vermont Studio Center.
Her work has been reviewed in The New York Times and Art in America, among other publications. She completed a public art commission for the NYC School Construction Authority in 2014 through the NYC Percent for Art program.
