Grant Lingard (1961–1995) was a New Zealand born artist who, although a painting graduate, focused on minimalist sculptural installations. He achieved note with the 1994 ARTNOW exhibition at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa.[citation needed] He was also involved in the Tales Untold project. Lingard focused on creating a visual language over the course of his ten-year career. Lingard used everyday materials recontextualised into a gallery context, hoping make the viewer see the links he was drawing. His work is conceptually similar to Félix González-Torres.

A scholarship in his name is offered at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand.
