The IMA is pleased to present a talk by Dutch artist Willem de Rooij.

De Rooij was born 1969 in Beverwijk, the Netherlands, and currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany. In his work he engages processes of selection and combination of images in a variety of different media, ranging from sculpture to photography, film and texts. De Rooij analyses conventions of presentation and representation and constructs tensions between socio-political and autonomous productions of meaning. Whilst already his earlier film installations had a sculptural character, his recent exhibitions, that often employ found materials and works of other artists, assert through the gesture of appropriation itself their specific artistic character. De Rooij studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Akademie in Amsterdam and at the Rijksakademie, Amsterdam. Recent solo exhibitions include Legal Noses, Regen Projects, Los Angeles (2015), The Impassioned No, Le Consortium, Dijon (2015), Character is Fate, Witte de With, Rotterdam (2015), Untilted, Kunstverein München, Munich (2012), Crazy Repelled Firelight, Friedrich Petzel Gallery, New York (2011) and Intolerance, Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin (2010). De Rooij is a Professor of Fine Art, Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Künste, Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main.

This event is free for IMA members. Suggested donation for non-members is $5.
