Kim Holleman is a New York-based artist who attended The Cooper Union in New York and The Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, Holland. Holleman creates work at the cross sections of art, nature and architecture and uses her work to further conversations about our relationship to the environment and the built world.
Holleman lectures widely on environmentalism and nature in art and architecture, and has presented at Parsons, The New School, The Cooper Union, MIT Media Lab and The Harvard Graduate School of Design, among others. In 2013, Holleman was invited to join MIT Media Lab as a Resident Artist, Visiting Scholar and Research Affiliate. (2013-2017)
Holleman has gained recognition across disciplines. Her award-winning work, Trailer Park: A Mobile Public Park- a living NYC park built inside a 14’ mobile trailer- has been shown widely in New York. Exhibitions of that project include The New Museum for Contemporary Art where it was called a “must see” by Art in America. Trailer Park was the subject of a feature article in The New York Times and was the subject of Ms. Holleman’s TEDx Talk at The Cooper Union.
Kim Holleman continues to mount exhibitions in New York and Europe. Ms. Holleman has a work of public art currently on view at the Williamsburg Waterfront in New York. This project entitled, “Down the Drain” is a large scale, site specific work addressing water pollution, using reclaimed materials, and is on view until 2024.
