Mary Ellen Carroll

Studio grant holder in Stockholm 1 May - 31 July 2018

Conceptual artist Mary Ellen Carroll (MEC, studios) lives and works in New York City. Her work occupies the disciplines of architecture/design and public policy, writing, performance and film. Her ongoing projects, The Circle Game in Dubai, prototype and PUBLIC UTILITY 2.0 for example, stand at the intersection of conceptual art, architecture, public policy, and legislation. Carroll frequently works with unsuspecting materials that range from trademarks and the law to public policy and land use or the lack thereof in Houston, as in the case with prototype 180. Or, the international and non-visible real estate of radio spectrum for Public Utility 2.0 as a form of 21st century land art, albeit for the airwaves. Teaching, lecturing and public presentations in architecture and land use policy are an important part of Carroll’s work and educational institutions have included architecture and public policy programs at DAI, Arnhem, Netherlands, Yale University, Rice University, Columbia University in New York, Sheffield University-UK, University of California at Irvine, Pusan National University, Busan, South Korea, Watermill Center and the DIA Art Foundation amongst others. Carroll has received numerous awards and honors, and her work is in public and private collections internationally.
