Nathan Lynch (AIR ’11) is a sculptor and performance artist who has made collaboration and experimentation major components of his practice. His concerns for political, environmental and social issues are filtered though notions of absurdity, simple-craft fabrication and the dramatic devices of storytelling. He has performed at the Lincoln Center, New York; The International Fringe Festival, Edinburgh; and the Alvin Lucier Festival, University of Virginia. Recent projects include a staged but unresolved tortoise race for Presidio Habitats, a vintage helmet installation at the Curiosity Shoppe and a habitat restoration project at Ano Nuevo State Reserve. He is currently an Artist-in-Residence at the Exploratorium and Chair and assistant professor for the Ceramics Program at California College of the Arts. Lynch lives and works in San Francisco.
