San Francisco-born, New York-based artist Tauba Auerbach has described her work as an attempt to reveal “new spectral and dimensional richness…both within and beyond the limits of perception.”
Engaging a variety of media, ranging from painting and photography to book design and musical performance, Auerbach explores the limits of our structures and systems of logic (linguistic, mathematical, spatial) and the points at which they break down and open up into new visual and poetic possibilities.
Tauba Auerbach studied at Stanford University and has had numerous solo exhibitions including Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, UK; Bergen Kunsthall, Norway; Malmö Konsthall, Sweden; Wiels Contemporary Art Center, Belgium; Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art, San Francisco, CA; as well as participated in numerous group exhibitions in institutions such as the Academy of Arts, Architecture, and Design, Prague, Czech Republic; National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C.; SFMOMA, San Francisco, CA; and Musee D’Art Moderne, Paris, France. She also runs the press and publishing house Diagonal Press.
A complimentary wine reception follows the event.
Presenting Sponsor: Martha and Max Wells. The 360 videography project is supported by Suzanne and Ansel Aberly: this support enables digital recording of all 360 Speaker Series programs and the creation of an online archive for learners of all ages.
