Karyn Olivier's works range from sculpture to large site-specific installations. Space is her principal medium, with which she creates complex intimation of solitude, interaction, secrecy, scale, and access.

In 2007 she was awarded a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, the Joan Mitchell Foundation Award, and an Art Matters grant. She received the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Biennial Award in 2003. This year Olivier will mount a public art project and participate in the Gwangju Biennial (Korea). Olivier will present a series of billboards in Houston, TX and a companion publication in 2009. Born in Trinidad and Tobago, Karyn Olivier received her MFA at Cranbrook Academy of Art and her BA in psychology at Dartmouth College. Olivier teaches sculpture at Bard College Milton Avery Graduate School of Arts.
