Artists on Artists Lecture Series

October 8, 2007    add to my calendar

Currently based in Boston, Helen Mirra was born in 1970 in Rochester, NY. Her solo exhibitions include presentations at Meyer Riegger Galerie, Karlsruhe (2007); Daad Galerie, Berlin (2006); Donald Young Gallery, Chicago (2005); Dallas Museum of Art (2004); University of California, Berkeley Art Museum (2003); and the Renaissance Society, Chicago (2001).

Imi Knoebel was born in Dessau, Germany, in 1940. He was a student of Joseph Beuys at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf from 1964 to 1971. His first exhibition, "IMI + IMI," with Imi Giese, a fellow student of Beuys's, was held in Copenhagen, in 1968. Knoebel has since exhibited his works in Documentas 5 (1972), 6 (1977), 7 (1982), and 8 (1987), and at Sonsbeek '71. In 1987 Knoebel oversaw an installation of his own work, as well as those of Beuys and Blinky Palermo for the inaugural exhibitions at Dia's galleries on West Twenty-second Street in New York City. A retrospective of his work traveled, in 1996-97, throughout Europe, including such venues as Haus der Kunst, Munich; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; and Institut Valencià d'Art Modern, Centre Julio González, Valencia. He lives and works in Düsseldorf.

Imi Knoebel’ Raum 19 (1968) is on view at Dia:Beacon.

Made possible by a grant from Art for Art's Sake, New York, and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, this series, established in 2001, highlights the work of contemporary artists from the perspective of their colleagues and peers, and focuses on artists in Dia's collection and exhibition programs.
