Anne Lindberg


Anne Lindberg makes sculpture and drawings that tap a non-verbal physiological landscape of body and space, provoking emotional, visceral and perceptual responses. She works with an expanded definition of drawing languages, and is influencing the resurgence of drawing in contemporary art.

Her work has been in solo and group exhibitions at such places as The Drawing Center (NYC), Tegnerforbundet (Norway), SESC Bom Retiro (Sao Paulo), Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Detroit Institute of Art, Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, Cranbrook Art Museum, Nevada Museum of Art, Spencer Museum of Art, and Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, among many others. Her work is held in collections of the Nevada Museum of Art, Detroit Institute of Art, Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Daum Museum of Contemporary Art, Spencer Museum of Art, Collection of Howard & Cindy Rachofsky, Niwako Kimono Company, US Sprint Corporation, H&R Block, University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics, Missouri Bank & Trust, American Century Investments, Hewlett Packard and the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City and others. 

Lindberg has been in recent exhibitions at the US Embassy in Rangoon, Burma, the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, and a solo exhibition at Carrie Secrist Gallery. In 2014, her work was included in a solo exhibition Haw Contemporary, a group exhibition titled Landscape, Abstracted at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Unmade: Anne Lindberg & Saskia Olde Wolbers at the Contemporary Art Center in Cincinnati, and in 2015 a group show called Ley Lines at the University of Wyoming Art Museum and an exhibition at The Mattress Factory. She recently completed a major public art commission for the GSA Art in Architecture program at the Richard Bolling Federal Building in Kansas City. 

Lindberg is the recipient of awards including a 2011 Painters & Sculptors Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant, a Charlotte Street Foundation Fellowship, two ArtsKC Fund Inspiration Grants, a Lighton International Artists Exchange grant, the Art Omi International Artists Residency, an American Institute of Architects Allied Arts and Crafts award, and a Mid-America National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship. She holds a BFA from Miami University (1985), and an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art (1988). Lindberg lives in upstate New York.
