Roni Horn

|

For over three decades, Roni Horn has been exploring issues of identity, gender, and location though her art. Many of her pieces are inspired by Iceland, whose landscape of isolation has greatly influenced her work, which ranges from striking photographic portraits, to abstract cast glass sculptures, to text, to photographs of bodies of water. Born in New York in 1955, Horn received her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA from Yale University before her first solo exhibition in 1980 at the Kunstraum München, in Germany. Since then, Horn has had solo exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (1990); the Art Institute of Chicago (2004); and Dia Center for the Arts, New York (2001). In November 2009, the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York held a survey show of Horn’s career, titled Roni Horn aka Roni Horn, for which the Lannan Foundation provided funding.  The show then traveled to the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; the Tate Modern, London; and the Collection Lambert, Avignon. The artist currently lives and works in New York.
