Amy Sillman: Artist Talk

Amy Sillman: Artist Talk
Montag, 27. Juni 2016, 19 Uhr, Aula

Amy Sillman is interested in painting and drawing, and how form gets entangled with other things, such as poetry, gesture, time, video/film, affect, feminism and humor. In her artist talk, she will outline the development of her work and process, and will discuss how various side-projects (such as zines and digital animations) have become more central to her practice as a painter. Sillman will also introduce her upcoming project for Portikus.

Sillman has lived in New York City since 1975, where she first studied Japanese language, before turning to painting. She received an MFA from Bard College in 1995, and has shown regularly since then, including such venues as The Whitney Museum, MoMA, and The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Her work is currently on view in Painting 2.0 at MuMOK in Vienna, and a group show at Barbara Gladstone in NYC. She is currently working on a digital animation about Ovid's Metamorphoses, which will be shown in January 2017 at The Drawing Center in NYC.

Amy Sillman has been a professor at Städelschule since Spring 2015.
