Meet the Artist
Anna Kunz received a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL (1991) and a MFA from Northwestern University, Evanston, IL (2000). She also studied at The Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Skowhegan, ME (2009). Kunz makes works on paper, paintings, sculptures, installations and projects that seep out of the rectangle, often using painted and dyed fabrics that function like nets to capture and manipulate light and color. Her work has been included in numerous national and international collections. Kunz has had exhibitions in Los Angeles, Houston, Brooklyn, San Antonio and the UK and Poland. She has also worked collaboratively with dancers and musicians to create Décor for theatrical and dance productions, namely for the Merce Cunningham Dance Company in 2009. In 2012, Kunz will collaborate with The Seldoms Dance Co. to create work for their new performance, and with Paige Cunningham for the Industry of the Ordinary’s retrospective at the Chicago Cultural Center. Anna Kunz often presents curated group exhibitions and events in the experimental space that she co-runs with Niels Vis in Amsterdam.
