Linda Sormin

Now Represented by United Contemporary

We are thrilled to announce the representation of New York-based multi-media artist, Linda Sormin. Sormin explores fragility, upheaval, migration, survival and change through sculpture and site-responsive installations. Her use of found objects, hand-drawn images and raw clay gives form to her family’s diasporic experience, paying homage to her ancestors, while providing a voice for her own story of displacement. Sormin’s sculptures create non-linear narratives, entwining histories and cultural references, revealing layers of personal archaeology.


Born in Thailand, Linda Sormin immigrated to Canada at the age of five. Sormin lives and works in New York City, and is Associate Professor of Studio Art at New York University. Notable collections include the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, UK, CLAY Museum of Ceramic Art, Denmark, Alfred Ceramic Art Museum, NY, and the RBC Collection and The Gardiner Museum, Toronto.


The gallery will be presenting a solo exhibition of new work by Sormin this Fall, 2022.


Linda Sormin's work is currently on view at MASS MoCA, MA, with a large format installation included in a group exhibition entitled Ceramics in the Expanded Field which runs until 2023.
