Mary Mattingly’s work bridges architecture, sculpture, and photography. Her work has been shown at the International Center of Photography, Seoul Art Center, Bronx Museum of the Arts, the Brooklyn Museum, deCordova Museum, and Palais de Tokyo. She has received grants from the James L. Knight Foundation, the Harpo Foundation, and the Jerome Foundation. In 2012 she was a recipient of the smARTpower project and worked with Green Papaya Art Space in Manila, the Philippines, initiated by the US Department of State and the Bronx Museum. She also launched the Flock House Project: three spherical living-systems that were choreographed throughout different cities in the United States. Mattingly founded the Waterpod Project, a barge-based public space containing a self-sufficient habitat in New York’s waterways. Her work has been written about in Artforum, Aperture Magazine, Art in America, ArtNews, Grey Room, Sculpture Magazine, The New York Times, Whitechapel’s Documents of Contemporary Art Series, Financial Times, Le Monde Magazine, New Yorker, and The Wall Street Journal, and shown on BBC News, MSNBC, and on Art21. Mattingly’s sculpture and living space WetLand is currently on the Delaware River in Philadelphia.
