Robert Flynt's work in photography and photographic-based installation has been widely exhibited both in the United States and abroad since the early 80's. The work has been shown in traditional museum and gallery settings, in alternative spaces, as part of performance art and dance performances, and is featured in numerous publications.
In 1992 his work was included in the "New Photography" exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, where his work is now part of the permanent collection. It is also in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum, The International Center of Photography (NY), The L.A. Country Museum, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, among many others. Other museums that have shown his work include the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia and the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans, as well as numerous university galleries. His notable one-person exhibitions have been at Witkin Gallery, Wessel+O'Connor Gallery and ClampArt in New York, the Craig Krull Gallery in Santa Monica, the G. Gibson Gallery in Seattle, and the Gomez Gallery in Baltimore. He has been included in over 50 group exhibitions since 1980.
Flynt's interest in collaborative projects have resulted in commissions from the Brooklyn Academy of Music with choreographer Bebe Miller in 1989, the L.A. International Arts Festival with Ishmael Houston-Jones and Dennis Cooper in 1990, and most recently with Yoshiko Chuma and the Daghdha Dance Company of Ireland. In 1994 he collaborated with writer Chris Packard for the installation piece and artist's book Blind Trust, which premiered at Temple University in Philadelphia and traveled throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Along with numerous visiting artist and residency engagements throughout the U.S., Canada, and Europe , Flynt has received fellowships from the MacDowell Colony, Light Work, the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation, Art Matters, and most recently the Peter S. Reed Foundation. His 1996 monograph, Compound Fracture (Twin Palms Publishers) received one of the Best Books of the Year Awards from the American Institute of Graphic Arts. He currently divides his time between New York and Arizona.
