Bio

Joan is known for making drawings packed with thousands, even hundreds of thousands of tiny, energized marks. Her large-scale images of quotidian subjects find inspiration from my immediate surroundings. Her resent project, Operation Sunshine, explores the toxic chemical and radioactive waste sites of the Buffalo -Niagara region. Her artwork has been exhibited in over 25 solo exhibitions at the Albright Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, The Faulconer Gallery, Grinnell College, IA, the Institute for the Humanities at the University at Michigan and Mixed Greens Gallery, NYC. Other past notable group exhibitions venues include Kunstahallen Brandts, Odense, Denmark; the Aldrich Museum, the Gwanjgu Art Museum, the Bronx Museum, the Queens Museum, and The Museum of Fine Arts Boston. She has been awarded residency fellowships at Yaddo, MacDowell Colony, Villa Montalvo, Smack Mellon Studios, Lower East Side Printshop, and a Pollock Krasner Foundation grant. Linder’s work has been written about in publications that include Hyperallergic, Art in America and the NY Times. She also has curatorial practice which resulted in the recent co-curated exhibition Hot Spots: Radioactivity in the Landscape, at the University of Buffalo Art Galleries and Krannert Museum at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign.
