Dannielle Tegeder: Infrastructure on view June 5, 2016–June 2017

MONTCLAIR, NJ, May 13, 2016—Beginning June 5, 2016, the Montclair Art Museum (MAM) will present new works by artist Dannielle Tegeder in MAM’s Laurie Art Stairway and on the outdoor video monitors. Infrastructure features a site-specific wall installation, large-scale mobile, and series of animations that merge the interior and exterior spaces of the Museum. The exhibition is curated by Alexandra Schwartz, MAM curator of contemporary art, and will be on view through June 2017.

Each piece in the exhibition is its own imagined urban system that also reacts to the surrounding architecture. Prominently featured in the Laurie Arts Stairway, a wall of glass windows allows the artwork on view to be visible from the street and viewers to see out on to the Museum’s grounds and beyond to the Manhattan skyline. The wall installation and mobile draw from the infrastructure that exists behind the Museum’s walls as well as reflect what is going outside of them. A complementary pair of animations on MAM’s outdoor video monitors are digital renderings of drawings that are set to motion to rhythms of contemporary classical composer Matthew Evan Taylor. The original drawing for the animation Zeolfrora is a recent acquisition to MAM’s collection.

“We are thrilled that Dannielle is making this extraordinary suite of site-specific works for the Montclair Art Museum,” said Schwartz. “The Laurie Arts Stairway functions as both an indoor and outdoor space. Dannielle’s installation and mobile go one step further by taking inspiration not only from what’s on view from the staircase but also what’s hidden behind the Museum’s walls.”

Dannielle Tegeder is a New York–based artist raised in a family of steamfitters, whose fascination with architecture, urbanism, and engineering inspire her abstract drawings, paintings, installations, and illustrations. Her work explores abstraction, and has begun to include large-scale installation, sculptural objects, video, sound, and animation.

Tegeder received her BFA from the State University of New York at Purchase and her MFA in Painting and Drawing from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago. Her work has been presented in over 100 gallery exhibitions, both nationally and internationally, and she has participated in numerous institution exhibitions including PS1/MOMA, The New Museum, and Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. Tegeder’s work is also in the permanent collections of The Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and The Weatherspoon Museum of Art in Greensboro, N.C. She is currently an Associate Professor of Art at the City University of New York at Lehman College.

This exhibition is also part of MAM’s New Directions series, the centerpiece of the Museum’s contemporary art program. New Directions was founded in 2011 to engage the community with new work that is at once accessible and thought provoking. The contemporary art series has featured artists including Marina Zurkow, Saya Woolfalk, Spencer Finch, and Noah Klersfeld.
