Chloe Piene

Conversations with Artists

November 16, 2017, 6:30 pm

University of Maryland Center for Art and Knowledge at The Phillips Collection

Chloe Piene’s videos and drawings assert a wry and morbid sexual prowess—including sketches of female nudes that are reminiscent of heavy-metal sirens, the death-march skeletons of Albrecht Dürer, and the emaciated figures of Egon Schiele. Ethereal, erotic, and sensual yet slightly chilling, the female bodies she depicts lie prostrate in a moment of death. Piene will be in conversation with Klaus Ottmann, Deputy Director for Curatorial and Academic Affairs at The Phillips Collection.
