Tate Liverpool is to present the first major UK exhibition of the New York based artist Charline von Heyl (b 1960). Developed in close collaboration with the artist, the exhibition includes over forty paintings and thirty-six works on paper in a period spanning from 1990 to the present.
Charline von Heyl emerged in the mid-1980s when a tangible sense of optimism and impending change permeated the air. In the latter half of the twentieth century, painting had acquired a beleaguered status with accusations of its irrelevance in the face of conceptual art, photography and the moving image.
