Whitney Lynn employs a wide range of media to create works that reframe narratives of familiar objects, images, and events. Mining cultural and political histories, Lynn uses tactics of appropriation to reflect on subjects such as historical archetypes and the role of images in the creation of myth. Lynn was the first-ever National Artist in Residence at The Neon Museum in 2016 and an Artist in Residence at the de Young Museum in 2017. Her projects have been shown at venues such as the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Torrance Art Museum, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery, and at galleries and art fairs nationwide.
