Wednesday, April 25
Columbus Auditorium, 280 S. Columbus Dr.
Charline von Heyl was born in Germany in 1960 and studied painting with Jorg Immendorff in Hamburg and Fritz Schwegler in Dusseldorf. She has lived in New York since 1996, and her work has been exhibited both in the United States and abroad, including solo museum exhibitions at Le Consortium, Dijon (2009), the Dallas Museum of Art (2005), and the Vienna Secession (2004). Von Heyl’s work is currently subject to two traveling survey exhibitions. The first was curated by Jenelle Porter and originated at the ICA Philadelphia and will travel to the ICA Boston in March. The second survey exhibition, curated by Gavin Delahunty and Ellen Seifermann, opens at the Tate Liverpool in late February and will travel to the Kunsthalle Nurnberg and Bonner Kunstverein. Von Heyl’s works are in the collections of the Musee d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among others. Group exhibitions include Oranges and Sardines: Conversations on Abstract Painting at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles (2008), and Make Your Own Life: Artists In and Out of Cologne (2006), which was organized at ICA and then traveled to the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami and the Henry Art Gallery in Seattle.
