Candice Lin received her MFA in New Genres at the San Francisco Art Institute and her double BA in Visual Arts and Art Semiotics at Brown University. 

Lin’s work engages notions of gender, race and sexuality through examining discrepant bodies, transformation and mutation, hybridization and disobedience, within the fields of  science, anthropology, queer theory, and marginalized histories.  

Lin’s work has been recently exhibited at the Kadist Art Foundation in Paris, the Delfina Foundation in London, La Maison Populaire in Paris, and Alhondiga Bilbao, Spain with recent solo exhibitions this year at Francois Ghebaly Gallery (Los Angeles) and CAAA (Guimaraes, Portugal).  Lin has been awarded several residencies and grants including the Artist Lab Residency at 18th Street (2015), the 2014 California Community Foundation Emerging Artist Fellowship, the Fine Arts Work Center Residency (2012), the Frankfurter Kunstverein Deutsche Borse Residency (2011), and the Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship (2009). She is represented by Quadrado Azul Gallery in Porto and Francois Ghebaly Gallery in Los Angeles.
