DC Moore Gallery Announces Representation of Amy Cutler in collaboration with Leslie Tonkonow Artworks + Projects

DC Moore Gallery is honored to announce its representation of Amy Cutler, in cooperation with Leslie Tonkonow Artworks + Projects. The artist will have her first exhibition with the gallery from May 2 – June 15, 2024.

Amy Cutler creates intricate paintings on paper and detailed graphite drawings of women, animals, and hybrid beings engaged in enigmatic situations. These narrative works give form to latent feelings, societal observations, and personal memories, building a complex, layered world of visual metaphors.

Amy Cutler lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She received her BFA from The Cooper Union School of Art in 1997. Her first solo museum show took place in 2002 at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia, PA, and was followed by one-person exhibitions at institutions such as the Indianapolis Museum of Art, IA, the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City, MO, and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid, Spain, among many others. In 2004, her work was featured in the Whitney Biennial. She has participated in numerous major surveys of contemporary art at institutions worldwide, including the Albertina, Vienna, Austria; Brooklyn Museum, New York, NY; KIASMA Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki, Finland; Kunsthallen Brandts, Odense, Denmark, MoMA PS 1, New York, NY; and the Museum Folkwang, Essen, Germany.

Her first major sculptural work, Alterations, was commissioned, exhibited, and acquired by the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid in 2007. In 2014, she was among a small group of artists invited by SITE Santa Fe to create new works to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the institution. The resulting work, a multimedia sculptural installation entitled Fossa, was commissioned by SITE Santa Fe and exhibited there in 2015, and in New York at Leslie Tonkonow Artworks + Projects in 2016.

Recent solo exhibitions of her work include Amy Cutler: Past, Present, Progress at Ruby City/The Linda Pace Foundation, San Antonio, TX (2023), Amy Cutler: A Narrative Thread at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, Madison, WI (2021), Amy Cutler at the Joslyn Art Museum, Omaha, NE (2020), and Amy Cutler: Colloquies at The Butler Gallery, Kilkenny, Ireland (2019).

Her work is represented in many public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; The Menil Collection, Houston, TX; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, Spain; National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA; Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indianapolis, IN; Morgan Library and Museum, New York, NY; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA; New Museum, New York, NY; Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, PA; The Phillips Collection, Washington, DC; Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY.
