CCA is pleased to present Anouk Kruithof as part of the college's Larry Sultan Visiting Artist Program.

Kruithof, a Dutch artist born in Dordrecht, the Netherlands, considers photography as a starting point of infinite possibilities. Research in the form of interviews, temporary installations, and performative interactions with unknown people and space form the basis of her photographs.

In March 2014 she will have a solo exhibition at Het Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. She has had solo exhibitions at gallery Boetzelaer I Nispen in London and Amsterdam; gallery Adler in Frankfurt; Museum het Domein in Sittard NL; and FOAM Amsterdam, among others.

Her work has been featured in such group shows as Bookhouse, La Forma del Libro at MARCA, Cantanzaro; The Feverish Library at Capitain-Petzel gallery, Berlin; Super Positions / The New Wight Biennal at UCLA Los Angeles; The Daegu Photo Biennal in Daegu, Korea; Crossroads at KIT (Kunst Im Tunnel) Düsseldorf; Quickscan #01 at Het Nederlands Fotomuseum.

Kruithof has exhibited at MAMM (Multimedia Art Museum Moskow) ACP Sydney; MAMAC Liege, Temporare Kunsthalle, Berlin; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; and DCC Shanghai en Kunstraum Niederosterreich, Vienna.

She was shortlisted for the emerging artist award as part of Pix Sea Award Belgium in 2013 and was awarded an ICP Infinity Award from the International Center for Photography in New York in 2012.

She currently lives in New York and is an artist in residence at ISCP.
