Ryan McNamara


Originally trained as a photographer and sculptor, Ryan McNamara’s practice has grown to include a wide array of performative actions, from nearly covert solo pieces to large scale theatrical productions. The detritus of these performances are then utilized as raw material for his object-based work.

McNamara’s work and performances have been shown at venues throughout the world including the Whitney Museum of American Art, MoMA PS1, Kunstmuseum Bonn, and The Garage Moscow, and is held in the collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

His piece “ME3M 4 Boston” will be presented at the ICA Boston in May 2018.
