Frederick Hammersley Visiting Artist: Molly Zuckerman-Hartung Open Studio

April 18 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Molly Zuckerman-Hartung is a painter and writer who grew up in Olympia, Washington and participated in Riot Grrrl in her formative years. She attended Evergreen State College in the 1990s, which introduced her to holistic structural ideas about aesthetics and politics. She makes paintings and cuts them up and pieces them back together with other paintings. Edge and seam become the subject, and the focus on transition has led to writing about process in painting. She is opening her attention to composting, depth psychology, poetics, climate change, doppelgängers, permaculture, New England furniture, rural transfer stations, daily rhythm, percussive rhythm, the effects of soul lag on humans, L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E poets, the color of sunlight through smoke from fires 3,000 miles away, and the emotional landscapes of students, friends and strangers alongside whom she lives.

She has shown at The Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, The 2014 Whitney Biennial, Kadel Willborn in Karlsruhe, Germany etc. In 2021 she opened a mid-career survey show at the Blaffer Museum in Houston, Texas, Comic Relief, accompanied by a monograph. She was a full-time senior critic at Yale School of Art until 2021 and is now teaching part time at Yale and SAIC, as well as low-res MFA advising at various schools around the country. She is a frequent guest lecturer at schools including, in recent years, Hunter College at CUNY, UCLA, Ohio State University, Cranbrook, University of Alabama, the SAIC Low Residency Program, and Cornell College. Zuckerman-Hartung is represented by Corbett vs Dempsey in Chicago.  https://www.mollyzuckermanhartung.com/
