Becky Brown was born in New York City and is the 2016-17 Visiting Resident Artist at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.  She works between painting, drawing, sculpture and installation using found images, objects and texts.  Lately, she has been exploring different relationships between pairs of words in the English language: opposition, synonymy, formal resemblance and hybrid links.  Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at venues including The Drawing Center, NYC; NARS Foundation, Brooklyn, NY; Fort Gondo Complex for the Arts, St. Louis, MO; Cleopatra’s Berlin, Germany; and Religare Arts Initiative, Delhi, India.  She has been an artist-in-residence at Yaddo, Saltonstall Foundation and the Edward Albee Foundation, among others. Her art criticism has been published in Art in America and The Brooklyn Rail.  She received her MFA from Hunter College and her BA from Brown University.
