Current Perspectives Lecture – Dannielle Tegeder

March 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Chroma Machine Suite: Forecasting Fault Lines in the Cosmos is a cross-disciplinary exhibition by artist Dannielle Tegeder. In an ongoing exploration of invisible systems, the artist reveals her deep engagement with ideas of architecture, urban planning, painting and collaboration in a dynamic environment that merges drawing, sculpture, animation, and sound.

Dannielle Tegeder will speak about her one-person exhibition, on view at the Artspace through March 17, 2018, a project that benefitted from the support of a project team of students from KCAI. A closing reception will be hosted on Friday, March 16, 6-8 pm.

Dannielle Tegeder was born in Peekskill, NY. She currently lives in Brooklyn, NY and maintains a studio at The Elizabeth Foundation in Manhattan. She received her BFA from the State University of New York at Purchase, and an MFA in Painting and Drawing from The Art Institute of Chicago. Tegeder’s work employs strategies connected to Post-Minimalism and Twentieth-Century abstraction, often utilizing mathematical, architectural or demographic data to produce an ever- evolving visual vocabulary. Her work is influenced by the mechanical drawings she observed as a child growing up in a family of steamfitters.

For the past ten years, Tegeder’s work has explored abstraction and architecture. While the core of her work is paintings and drawings, she has expanded her practice to large-scale installation, sculptural objects, sound, and animation. Her work has been presented in over 100 gallery exhibitions, both nationally and internationally in Paris, Houston, Los Angeles, Berlin, Chicago, and New York. Tegeder has participated in numerous institution exhibitions including PS1/MOMA, The New Museum, The Brooklyn Museum of Art in New York, and Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. Several of her works are in the Collection at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, and The Weatherspoon Museum of Art in Greensboro, NC.

Tegeder is the recipient of several residencies and grants including The Yaddo Foundation, The Triangle Foundation Residency and Workshop, Elizabeth Foundation in New York, The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Studio Residency at Governor’s Island, Smack Mellon Studios and Artist Stipend, Banff Centre for the Arts, Artist Residency in Banff, Canada, The Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Lower East Side Print Fellowship Edition Award, National Studio Program, P.S.1/MOMA Affiliate, Clocktower, New York, NY, ART OMI, Omi International Arts Center, Omi, NY, Henry Street Settlement Studio Fellowship, NY, and The Marie Walsh Sharpe Studio Fellowship, NY.

Tegeder has recently exhibited at the Montclair Art Museum in New Jersey, Wellin Museum of Art at Hamilton College, Augeo Art Space in Rimini Italy, and National Gallery in Washington D.C. She has upcoming exhibitions at the Carrie Secrist Gallery in Chicago and the Frist Museum in Nashville. Her exhibition at the H&R Block Artspace at the Kansas City Art Institute is on view until March 17, 2018.
