Kaitlin Pomerantz (she, they) is an artist and educator based in Philadelphia (Lenapehoking), working in a variety of mediums to consider relationships between humans, place, material, and land in this moment of an environmental and systemic breakdown of under-recognized extractive powers. In mixed-media works, site-specific installation, and printed matter, Pomerantz’s projects and investigations capture fleeting moments of connection and highlight power, presence, and time, offering space for reflection and recalibration.
Pomerantz has completed residencies at RAIR Philly, Italy’s Lugo Land, India’s Sangam Centre, and Land Arts of the American West at Texas Tech University. In 2018 Pomerantz received the Young Friends of the Preservation Alliance Award from the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia, Yvonne M. Kelly Memorial Prize for Mixed Media from the Woodmere Art Museum, and an artist grant from the Faculty Venture Fund at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. In 2017, Pomerantz participated in Monument Lab, a city-wide arts festival in Philadelphia, creating a monument in the form of reconstructed stoops from demolished buildings around the City. Pomerantz has most recently exhibited work at New York’s Jack Hanley Gallery and Philadelphia’s Atelier Gallery, and their work is held in private collections nationally.
