Amy Sillman is an artist who works primarily in painting and drawing. Born in Detroit and raised in Chicago, she moved to NYC at age 19 to study language and literature before turning to visual art, but has retained an interest in the psychological (and sometimes comic) spaces between form and language. Sillman’s active exhibition record began in the 1990’s, and her work is now included in many public and private collections. In 2013 she had a traveling mid-career survey show called one lump or two, which opened at the ICA Boston, accompanied by a monograph published by Prestel, NYC. Her bibliography also includes Amy Sillman: Works on Paper, a book on her drawings published in 2006 by Gregory R. Miller. Sillman got her MFA at Bard College, and then taught there until 2012. In 2015 she begins a Professorship at the Staedelschule in Frankfurt.
