In a talk entitled "The Materials of the Artist and Their Use in Painting," Berlin-based painter Monika Baer will discuss her idiosyncratic practice, which has been characterized as romantic, conceptual, and Surrealist-inflected. In 2007, she participated in Documenta 12. She has had recent solo exhibitions at Galerie Barbara Weiss, Berlin; Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Zurich; Richard Telles Fine Art, Los Angeles; and the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich. She will be the subject of a focus exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago in 2013.

The Society for Contemporary Art would like to acknowledge our partnership with Sotheby’s as underwriters of our programming throughout the year.
