Anna Kunz makes works on paper, paintings, sculptures, installations, and projects that seep out of the rectangle, often using painted and dyed fabrics that function like nets to capture and manipulate daylight and color. Her experiential works are often combined with objects or surfaces that add complexity and invite viewers to structure the space in time by walking through them.
Kunz’ work has been included in numerous national and international collections. Ms. Kunz has had exhibitions in Los Angeles, Houston, Brooklyn, Dallas and San Francisco, the UK and Poland. Recent exhibitions include C2C Project Space, San Francisco, “Luminae” at White Box NYC,“ Verge, at Munch Gallery, LES NYC, Color: Fully Engaged”, curated by Jamilee Lacy, “Spectral Landscape” at Gallery 400 University of Illinois at Chicago, and “The Banner Project” at the Smart Museum on the University of Chicago’s campus.
Anna has worked collaboratively with architects, dancers and musicians to create Décor for theatrical and dance productions, namely for the Merce Cunningham Dance Company in 2009.

Driehaus Foundation, and an Emerging Artist award from the National Museum of Women in the Arts in WA, D.C, an Artadia Chicago nomination, and 2011 and 2012 was nominated for the Rema Hort Mann Foundation’s Individual Artists Grant in New York City.
