“Currently I’m highlighting the tendency towards accidental collections (all the extension cords from my studio, all the sheets, all the yarn, or all the tape, etc.) by combining them with objects or architectural elements found on site.  This immediate way of responding to sites and the current contents of my studio becomes a candid representation of a specific moment in time.”

Kerry Phillips has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions including projects with Orlando Art Museum, Locust Projects, the Miami Art Museum (now Pérez Art Museum Miami), Museum of Contemporary Art, and Boca Raton Museum of Art, the Art & Culture Center of Hollywood, the Girls’ Club Collection & Bridge Red Studios Project Space, among others. Phillips performed Sometimes your things (the great exchange) at Pulse Art Fair, Miami, in association with Girls’ Club Fort Lauderdale and Crush Letters at the Last Minute Performance Festival, Krakow, Poland. She was awarded the Orlando Museum of Art Florida Prize in Contemporary Art in 2018, the 2015 South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship for Visual & Media Artists and a commissioned project with Vizcaya’s Lost Spaces & Stories of Vizcaya Contemporary Arts Program. She’s received other grants for her art making from public and private organizations as well as residencies and shows in Ohio, Vermont, New York, North Carolina, Berlin, Krakow and France. Phillips lives and works in Miami.
