Katy Krantz

Katy Krantz’s objects and installations document a turbulent and playful process of making. Chance, surprise and the transformation of material play an important role in her work. Krantz has exhibited widely, showing her work at such venues as The Oakland Museum and the Richmond Art Center in California, as well as at the City Museum of Cuernavaca, in Cuernavaca, Mexico. She has had solo shows of her ceramic work at Iko Iko Space in Los Angeles and Saffron in Brooklyn. Krantz was a Pollock-Krasner Fellow at the Woodstock-Byrdcliffe Artist’s Colony in 2009. She earned her MFA from Hunter College and her BA from the University of California, Santa Cruz. Krantz currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
