Press Release:

Molly Zuckerman-Hartung is a painter in constant confusion. She puts it back into the frame so she can keep the uncontrollable in sight. Affect, speed, love, touch, and language and/or its absence are hearsed and rehearsed. As evidence, remnant, and experience, paintings are hung on walls, in spaces. These walls and spaces provide context (public, market, sign, discourse et al) and change the meaning of the work fundamentally. Coping with that change is the work which produces confusion. She asserts that this is the value of painting.  Included in this year’s Whitney Biennial, Zuckerman-Hartung is a Visiting Artist-in-Residence at Cannonball.  Born in Los Gatos, CA, in 1975, Molly Zuckerman-Hartung lives and works in Chicago. She received an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2007, where she now teaches and is co-founder of Julius Caesar Gallery, an artist-run exhibition space in Chicago. Her work has been featured in solo exhibitions at Anna Kustera, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Kadel Willborn, Karlsruhe, Germany; and Rowley Kennerk, Chicago. She is represented by Corbett vs. Dempsey in Chicago.
