Larry Krone Bio

Born in Chicago, IL in 1970, I was raised in St. Louis, MO and now live and work in New York City’s East Village. I have been exhibiting my drawings, sculptures, installations and videos since the early 1990s, most notably at The Contemporary Baltimore, The Museum of Contemporary Craft in conjunction with Portland Institute for Contemporary Art (Portland, OR), The Whitney Museum of American Art Philip Morris Branch (New York), The New Museum of Contemporary Art (New York), the Drawing Center (New York), and the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis who, in 2006 presented “Larry Krone: Artist/Entertainer,” a ten-year retrospective of my visual and performance work.

As a performer, I have appeared at music and art venues in New York including Joe’s Pub, La MaMa, Dixon Place, PS 122, Starlight Bar & Lounge, and the Whitney Museum of American Art as well as Mercer Union (Toronto), Croxhapox (Gent), Blueberry Hill (St. Louis), Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, Better Days Project (Hamburg), and Someday Lounge (Portland, OR).

My costume design and fabrication for my own performances has led to the creation of House of Larréon, my line of custom gowns and stage costumes, outfitting cabaret performers, dancers and rock singers including Bridget Everett, Neal Medlyn, Adrienne Truscott, and Kathleen Hanna.

I am a 2019 Caldera AIR, a 2011, 2012, and 2018 MacDowell Colony fellow, a 2017 Yaddo Fellow, a 2013 Millay Colony fellow,  and a 2009 and 2015 New York Foundation for the Arts fellow.
