The public is invited to participate in a collaborative writing game using collage and found texts from the exhibition
New York artist Dannielle Tegeder creates a series of abstract drawings on paper that render tribute to a number of living Irish poets. The public has an opportunity to engage with Tegeder and her work in two interactive teas that will feature an artist-led discussion and creative writing exercise.
A native of Peekskill, NY, Brooklyn-based artist Dannielle Tegeder received a BFA from the State University of New York at Purchase and an MFA in painting and drawing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Tegeder works in the intersection of visual art and literature. For the past 15 years, her work—paintings and drawings, plus large-scale wall drawings, sculptural objects, and animation—has explored abstraction and the legacy of modernism, and has been exhibited in more than 100 national and international gallery exhibitions. She has held teaching positions at Cornell University and SUNY Purchase, and is currently an associate professor of art at the City University of New York at Lehman College.
Through a grandmother who immigrated to New York from Country Kerry, Tegeder recently became an Irish citizen.Buy tickets/get more info now
