She has exhibited at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, the New York Museum of Modern Art, Sundance (2008, 2010), and the Kiasma Museum of Helsinki. In 2001 she received the prestigious Anonymous Was a Woman fellowship, New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship (2007), as well as a Lambent Fellow.
