(American, born 1969)
New York City-based artist Sarah Sze expands the boudaries between painting, sculpture, video, and installation. Her artworks question the value society places on images and objects, and how they assign meaning to the places and times we live in. Her artworks range from intimate paintings to expansive installations and public artworks that cover entire walls and buildings.
Sarah Sze serves as a professor of visual art at Columbia University. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Yale University in Connecticut in 1991 and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the School of Visual Arts in New York City in 1997. Her works are collected by many international institutions, including the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York City, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Tate Modern museum in London, England. In 2013, she represented the United States at the Venice Biennale international art exhibition in Italy.
