About the Artist

Linling Lu was born in 1983 in Zunyi, Guizhou Province, China, and currently lives and works in Baltimore. In addition to her colorful circular paintings, Lu’s other work includes small sculptures of interlocking wood blocks, as well as fabric collages that incorporate Chinese textiles. Lu received a BFA and MFA in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art. Her work has been presented in numerous exhibitions, including at Towson University’s Center for the Arts (2018), Kohl Gallery at Washington College (2019), The Delaware Contemporary (2021), Katzen Arts Center at American University (2022), and Kalamazoo Institute of Arts (2022). Lu’s work is in the collections of Microsoft Art, Louis Vuitton, City Center DC, and the Embassy of the United States of America in Beijing. 


Intersections logo

Intersections is a series of contemporary art projects that explores—as the title suggests—the intriguing intersections between old and new traditions, modern and contemporary art practices, and museum spaces and artistic interventions. Whether engaging with the permanent collection or diverse spaces in the museum, the projects suggest new relationships with their own surprises. Many of the projects also riff on the nontraditional nature of the museum’s galleries, sometimes activating spaces that are not typical exhibition areas with art produced specifically for those locations.
