Sadie Benning in conversation with Lynne Cooke

Special Events at Dia:Chelsea

September 14, 2007    add to my calendar

Born in 1973 in Madison, Wisconsin, Sadie Benning started making films at age fifteen with a Fisher-Price Pixelvision camera. An intensely personal exploration of the artist's coming of age, as found in such early works as Jollies (1990), Me and Rubyfruit (1989), and If Every Girl Had a Diary (1990), brought her widespread acclaim. At the age of twenty, Benning was first included in the 1993 Whitney Biennial; she was included again in 2000. She is a former member and cofounder of the music group Le Tigre. More recent video works include The Judy Spots (1995), which aired on MTV, and Flat is Beautiful (1998). In 2004, The Wexner Center for the Arts presented a retrospective of all the artist's videos to date; Play Pause had its debut there. Lately, Benning has expanded her video practice to include painting and drawing.
