Caroline Woolard


Caroline Woolard's exhibition Carried on Both Sides: Encounter Two is at the LMAK Gallery in New York through February 25, 2018. Caroline was interviewed by Thyrza Nichols Goodeve (Rail) for the article The Art of Institutional Possibility published in The Brooklyn Rail.

I then determine the methods and expertise that I need to follow this line of inquiry, which often involves bringing in collaborators in areas of expertise beyond my own.
