About the Artist

Born in Trinidad and Tobago, Karyn Olivier received her BA from Dartmouth College and her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Awards for her work include the Core Fellowship Residency at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and Skowhegan’s Camille Hanks Cosby Fellowship for African-American Artists. Olivier’s installations alter architectural space to affect our experience of it in playful and sometimes disquieting ways. Her work has been exhibited at the Nave Museum, Victoria, TX; Galveston Fine Arts Center; Dallas Center for Contemporary Art, the Soap Factory, Minneapolis, MN; and PS.1 Contemporary Art Center and the Sculpture Center, New York.
