BRENDAN CARROLL is a visual artist. He was born and raised in New Jersey. His materials are accessible and utilitarian: the Polaroid camera and the Remington Sperry-Rand typewriter. He types anecdotes in the lower white margin of each Polaroid. The anecdotes are derived from his personal memory, other people's memories, from actual events, or from his imagination. He cofounded Agitators Collective in 2006. Agitators Collective creates site-related installations in urban locales that have fallen into neglect or dereliction.

Brendan has exhibited his work at The Bronx Museum of the Arts, Bronx, NY; Jersey City Museum, Jersey City, NJ; Leubsdorf Art Gallery, NY, NY; Center for the Book Arts, NY, NY; A.M. Richard Fine Art, New York, NY; Exile, Berlin, Germany. His work has been featured in several periodicals, including The New York Times, Village Voice, Art Fag City, ART:21 Blog, and Time Out New York. He has participated in AIM 28 (Artist in the Marketplace) at The Bronx Museum of the Arts. He has won numerous awards, including a Geraldine Dodge Fellowship to attend Vermont Studio Center in 2001. He received his BFA from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA, in 1996. He lives and works in Jersey City, NJ.
