Speaker Information

Mary Mattingly is an artist who makes sculptures and photographs about imagined futures. She builds sculptural ecosystems that prioritize access to food, shelter, and clean water, resulting in large-scale participatory projects around the world. In 2016, she led “Swale,” a floating sculpture and edible landscape on a barge in New York that depended upon water common law and inspired New York City Parks to establish their first public “Foodway.” Her artwork has been exhibited at institutions such as Storm King Art Center, the International Center of Photography, Seoul Art Center, the Brooklyn Museum, Palais de Tokyo, Barbican Art Gallery, and Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Havana. Notable grants include the Guggenheim Foundation Grant, the James L. Knight Foundation, the Harpo Foundation, New York Foundation for the Arts, and the Jerome Foundation. Her work has been featured in various documentaries and publications, including Art21 and The New York Times.
