The Visitor Talks – Ulrike Müller

September 19, 2016 from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
CCS Bard, Classroom 102

Ulrike Müller engages relationships between abstraction and bodies and a concept of painting that is not restricted to brush and canvas. Employing a wide range of materials and techniques, including performance, publishing, and textiles, her work moves between different contexts and publics, invites collaboration, and expands to other realms of production in processes of exploration and exchange.

Ulrike Müller studied art at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, Austria, and participated in the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program, New York. She has been a co-editor of the queer feminist journal LTTR and organized Herstory Inventory. 100 Feminist Drawings by 100 Artists, a collaborative project that was exhibited together with objects from the respective collections at the Brooklyn Museum and at the Kunsthaus Bregenz in 2012. In 2010, Müller represented Austria in the Cairo Biennial.

Recent solo exhibitions include Museum of Modern Art Ludwig Foundation (Mumok, 2015) and Kunstraum Lakeside (2014), both in Austria. At Mumok, Müller, together with Manuela Ammer, co-curated Always, Always, Others (2015), a collection exhibition that brought together early modernism and the 1970s. Her work is currently on view in Painting 2.0 at Mumok in Vienna. A solo show of new works will open at Callicoon Fine Arts in New York in September 2016. 

This talk is given as part of the lecture series : The Visitor Talks – We are the Center for Curatorial Studies : The Department of Events (The Discursive Core)
