Heidkamp’s work is frequently featured in group exhibitions both stateside and abroad, including recent shows at Derek Eller Gallery, New York; LOYAL Gallery, Stockholm; Marlborough, Madrid; Jack Hanley Gallery, New York; and Robert Miller Gallery, New York. Heidkamp’s work is currently featured in Talking Pictures, an exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, which presents sets of visual correspondence between twelve pairs of artists.
Each year professional artists are invited to give lectures at Pratt and conduct studio visits with our graduate students. The Visiting Artists Lectures are coordinated by two selected graduate students and overseen by faculty advisors. The goal for the lectures and studio visits is to provide our students with exposure to a wide array of artists working in a variety of fields at various stages in their career.
Some of the past visiting artists include: Nicole Eisenman, Tom Sachs, Aura Satz, Leigh Ledare, Judith Bernstein, Dan Walsh, Kalup Linzey, Keltie Ferris, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Diana Al-Hadid, Mary Walling-Blackburn, Michelle Handelman, Phoebe Washburn, Rashaad Newsome, Dora + Maja, Bryan Zanisnik, Nancy Grossman, Guido Van Der Werve, Carrie Schneider, Tamy Ben Tor and Miki Carmi, Peter Saul, Michael Berryhill, Wafaa Bilal, and Catherine Opie.
