ABOUT THE ARTIST
Sharon Brant (lives Beacon, NY) has exhibited her work internationally for the past four decades, including in Europe, Australasia, Mexico, and the United States. Her recent museum exhibitions include MoMA PS1, Rochester Museum, Everson Museum of Art, Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, and Instituto de Artes Graficas de Oaxaca (Mexico). Brant moved permanently to New York City in 1966 and her work was included several years later in the Whitney Museum of American Art’s Painting Annual in 1972. She exhibited regularly with OK Harris between 1969-1972, A.I.R. Gallery between 1988-1994, and Margaret Thatcher Projects between 1999-2003. In 1968, Brant was one of eight founding members of MUSEUM, A Project of Living Artists, an artist-run exhibition and meeting space located at 729 Broadway in New York City, which was intended as a politically-progressive community center for artists with the goal of supporting “a more alive connection between art and society.” Brant is a member of American Abstract Artists and her work has been reviewed in Artforum, The New York Times, ARTnews, Art International, Arts Magazine, and The Brooklyn Rail, among others.
