Over the last three decades, Sadie Benning’s (b. 1973 Madison, WI) work has taken the form of experimental video, performance, and most recently mixed-media wall-mounted works that trouble the distinctions between painting, drawing, sculpture, and photo collage. Benning’s ambivalent, pluralistic relationship to medium speaks to an ongoing desire to forge complex relations between form and content. Benning’s work is in many important public collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; the Whitney Museum of American Art; and the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris. Solo exhibitions include Pain Thing, Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, OH; “Shared Eye” Renaissance Society, Chicago, IL and Kunsthalle Basel, Switzerland; and “Play Pause” at the Dia Foundation for the Arts, New York, the Power Plant, Toronto, Ontario, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Their work “Shared Eye” was installed in “Surrounds: 11 Installations” at the Museum of Modern Art New York when it re-opened in 2019. Benning’s work has also been included in “Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon,” New Museum, New York; “Painting 2.0: Expression in the Information Age,” Museum Brandhorst, Munich, Germany; and the 2013 Carnegie International, Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, PA. They are one of the founding members of the iconic band Le Tigre.
