About Cheryl Donegan
Cheryl Donegan lives and works in New York. She received her B.F.A. in Painting at the Rhode Island School of Design and an M.F.A. at Hunter College in New York. Donegan emerged in the 1990s with video works that were direct, irreverent performances, infused with an ironic eroticism. Her performative actions before the camera often resulted in or related to process paintings and drawings. More recently, in her paintings, Donegan derives abstraction from debased images of consumer objects and spaces. Her work has been exhibited internationally, including at the Tang Museum of Art, Saratoga Springs, New York (2010–11); The Museum of Modern Art, New York (2009); the Whitney Biennial, New York (1995); the Biennale d'Art Contemporain de Lyon, France (1995); and the Venice Biennale (1993). Donegan has also presented work at Nicelle Beauchene Gallery, New York (2011; 2010); Hidde van Seggelen Gallery, London (2010; 2008; 2006); Galerie VidalCuglietta, Brussels (2010); and Oliver Kamm/5BE Gallery, New York (2007; 2006; 2005; 2003).
