Born in Austria and based in New York, Ulrike Müller works primarily in painting, pushing the tradition of hardedge abstraction beyond formal concerns to explore issues of identity and representation. Combining her painting practice with performance, sculpture, publishing, and textiles among numerous other media and approaches, oftentimes working collaboratively, Müller’s work explores questions of the body and identity politics from a queer perspective. She has been a coeditor of the queer feminist journal LTTR and organized «Herstory Inventory. 100 Feminist Drawings by 100 Artists.» Recent exhibitions include a solo show at mumok in Vienna, as well as inclusion in the 2017 Whitney Biennial and in «Painting 2.0: Expression in the Information Age» at Museum Brandhorst in Munich. Her work has also been exhibited at MoMA PS1, the Hessel Museum of Art, Dia Art Foundation and the ICA Boston. Most recently her work is included in the exhibition «Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon» at the New Museum in New York. Müller teaches painting at Bard College and Yale University.
