Linda Ganjian

Linda Ganjian is a NY-based artist who works in a variety of materials, from clay to cement to paper. Her main pursuit involves 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 more personal narratives.

Her work has been exhibited in New York and abroad. Some venues include: Art in Buildings 125 Maiden Lane, NYC; Islip Art Museum, NY; Depo, Istanbul; Auxiliary Projects; Artspace, New Haven, CT; National Academy of Design; Socrates Sculpture Park; Queens Museum; Storefront for Art and Architecture; the Brooklyn Museum of Art; and Stedelijk museum de Lakenhal in Leiden, Holland.

Grants/fellowships include: Pollock-Krasner Foundation; the Queens Council on the Arts; Artslink; MacDowell Colony; Millay Colony; and Vermont Studio Center.

She completed a public art commission for the NYC School Construction Authority in 2014 and the NYC MTA in 2016. In 2019, she was a QCA ArtPort resident at LaGuardia Airport.
