Kaitlynn Redell Bio

Kaitlynn Redell is a visual artist based in Los Angeles, CA. She received her BFA from Otis College of Art and Design in 2009 and her MFA from Parsons the New School for Design in 2013. Her practice is invested in dismantling socially constructed, categorizations of the body. More specifically she is interested in inbetweeness and how “unidentifiable” bodies—that do not identify with standard categories—negotiate identity. She has participated in numerous exhibitions nationally and internationally including at El Museo del Barrio (NYC), Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery (LA), Charlie James Gallery (LA), Pearl Conard Gallery at Ohio State University Mansfeld (OH), Zuckerman Museum of Art (GA), Københavns Universitet, Institut for Folkesundhedsvidenskab (Copenhagen), Museo Laboratorio - Ex Manifattura Tabacchi (Italy) and was included in the 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts: Birth As Criterion, in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Redell has been an Artist-in-Residence at the Wassaic Project (NY), Popps Packing (MI) and Yaddo (NY). She is a 2018 recipient of a Sustainable Arts Foundation Award.

Redell is a frequent teaching artist throughout the Los Angeles area and has lectured and given workshops at institutions including The J. Paul Getty Museum, The Craft and Folk Art Museum, The Brentwood Art Center, The Gamble House (in conjunction with Machine Project), Pomona College, Armory Center for the Arts and the Feminist Center for Creative Work.
