CLINTON, NY.- New York City-based artist Dannielle Tegeder will receive her first solo museum exhibition, “Dannielle Tegeder: Painting in the Extended Field,” at the Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art this spring. Featuring new and recent work, the exhibition will examine how Tegeder challenges the two-dimensional boundaries of traditional painting through the integration of animation, sculpture, photography, and sound into her work. The exhibition will open on May 11 and run through July 28, 2013.

Born to a family of steamfitters in 1971, Tegeder evoked the trade’s architectonic schematics in her early, abstract drawings and paintings of dystopian, post-apocalyptic cities. After receiving her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1997, she spent the next several years moving between Chicago, New York City, and Mexico City. Her experiences in those different metropolises inspired her to create three-dimensional sculptures and installations based on her drawing practice. This work, on view in the 2006 exhibition “Smooth Shatter” at Priska C. Juschka Fine Art, was lauded by Art in America critic Steve Vincent as a “standout.” ArtReview critic Michelle Grabner noted the sculptures employed “the same design vocabulary and colour palette as her paintings, yet have a sense of humor not as obvious in her two-dimensional work.” This newfound sense of dimensionality led to a series of abstract, gouache drawings that incorporated geometric shapes and lines with an organic and spatial compositional approach. Art critic Karen Rosenberg of The New York Times commented that Tegeder’s paintings, on view at the National Academy Museum in 2008, were reminiscent of “early Duchamp and Italian Futurism.” In 2009, Rosenberg reviewed Tegeder’s solo show “Arrangements to Ward of Accidents” at Priska C. Juschka Fine Art and called the work Nocturnal System Drawing and Atomic Nightlight (2009) “excellent” and Tegeder’s installation The Library of Abstract Sound (2009), which featured more than 100 drawings that had been entered into a customized computer program to create sound equivalents, “winning” and “playful.”

Known for blending elements of early modernism, Post-Minimalism, and Twentieth-Century abstraction, Tegeder is now creating work that explores the possibilities of multimedia. In addition to The Library of Abstract Sound, Tegeder created Series 1: Animations (2010-2011). Using instrumental soundtracks provided by four contemporary composers, Tegeder choreographed an animated deconstruction and reordering of several of her large drawings. Both the animations and a new version of The Library of Abstract Sound will be on view at the Wellin.

“After participating in a number of group shows—including exhibitions at the New Museum, PS1/MoMA, Brooklyn Museum, and National Academy Museum—I’m looking forward to my first dedicated museum exhibition,” said artist Dannielle Tegeder. “At the Wellin, I’ll be able to share a narrative of my artistic process over the last five years and investigate the entirety of my career in the exhibition catalogue. The solo exhibition is also spurring the creation of new, large-scale, and site-specific works that allow me to delve further into recent areas of investigation.”

The Wellin has commissioned two new works by Tegeder: a 4 x 10 foot, glass and metal mobile, and a mural-size, site-specific wall drawing, made with the assistance of Hamilton art students, that will respond to the interior architecture of the Wellin’s new Machado and Silvetti-designed building. Tegeder is also creating new work to debut at the exhibition, including: a 17-foot-long diptych that is part of a series of large-scale drawings and multi-panel painting, and a site-specific sculptural installation, comprised of non-traditional architectural models and materials, that reengages with her earlier preoccupation with dystopian blueprints and cities.

“Having watched Dannielle’s evolution as an artist for more than 10 years, I know her rigorous, systembased and experimental methods that draw from mathematics, architecture, sociology, art history, and musicology are a perfect fit for the museum’s interdisciplinary approach,” said Tracy L. Adler, director of the Wellin Museum. “We look forward to her residency here and the exchange of ideas she will have with students, faculty, and staff.”

“Dannielle Tegeder: Painting in the Extended Field” is organized and curated by Wellin Museum Director, Tracy L. Adler. A fully illustrated catalogue, to be published in June 2013, will accompany the exhibition. It will feature essays by art critic Barry Schwabsky and curator at the Drawing Center Claire Gilman and include an interview with Tegeder by Xandra Eden, Curator of Exhibitions at the Weatherspoon Art Museum at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

Dannielle Tegeder earned her BFA from the State University of New York at Purchase and her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has had solo gallery exhibitions in Paris, Berlin, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Houston and participated in numerous group exhibitions at PS1/MoMA, The New Museum, The Brooklyn Museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. She is the recipient of many residencies and grants including from Yaddo, Triangle Arts Association, Pollock- Krasner Foundation, Smack Mellon Artist Studio Program, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Governor's Island Swing Space Residency, and the Marie Walsh Sharpe Space Program. She has been a visiting artist at Cornell University, RISD, Pratt Institute, San Francisco Art Institute, Princeton University, Maryland Institute College of Art, and other educational institutions. Her work is in the collections of a number of museums including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, and the Weatherspoon Art Museum at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
