Deric Carner

Discipline: Visual Art – mixed media
Region: Brooklyn
MacDowell fellowships: 2009

Carner lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He received an M.F.A. at the Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam, NL, 2005; with a concurrent MA from the University of Plymouth, UK, 2005, and a B.F.A. in Studio Art from the University of California at Santa Cruz, 1998. He has participated in group and solo exhibitions including: “Repetition Island,” Centre Pompidou, Paris, 2010; “Range Rover,” Louis V.E.S.P., Brooklyn, 2010; “None of the Above,” Romer Young Gallery, San Francisco; “Hypnotic Show,” Artists Space, New York, 2009; and “BMW,” IX Baltic Triennial of International Art, CAC Vilnius, 2005.
