Susanne Kühn
MAY 2-SEPTEMBER 21, 2008

 

Susanne Kühn represents the next generation of artists from Germany with reemerging interests in figurative narrative abstraction. Kühn challenges the group known as the New Leipzig School that includes Neo Rauch, Matthias Weischer, Martin Kobe, David Schnell, and Christoph Ruckhaberle, by bringing her experience living and studying in America to the fore. Kühn?s work offers painterly and formal connections between figures, landscape, and architecture through a vocabulary that is emblazed with gorgeous light and informed by German art and history. This solo exhibition of paintings and drawings was organized by MCA Denver in collaboration with Kunstverein Freiburg, Germany.

Kühn ? born in Leipzig, Germany in 1969 ? lives and works in Freiburg, Germany. She received an MFA from the Hochschule Furtwangen Grafik und Buchkunst Leipzig, Germany and completed postgraduate studies at the School of Visual Arts, Hunter College, New York. She has had solo exhibitions at Kunstverein Freiburg, Germany; Galerie Kleindienst, Leipzig, Germany; Echolot, Berlin, Germany and Radcliffe Institute, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA among others.
