FOG Design+Art 2024

    January 18-21, 2024

    Booth 201

    Jessica Silverman presents a solo booth by Claudia Wieser at FOG Design+Art 2024. On view from January 18 to 21, the booth was conceived as a total environment, featuring polished stainless steel mirrors, turned wood sculptures, ceramic tile furniture, a woven tapestry, drawings and wallpaper. Titled “Echoes of Life,” the installation flirts with functionality while being highly formal with a big-picture perspective on art history. In dialogue with the visual rhythms of Sonia Delaunay and the mysticism of Hilma af Klint, Wieser’s work spans debates in architecture, design, and fashion, making the artist a fitting choice for the 11th edition of San Francisco’s premier art fair.

    Claudia Wieser (b. 1973, Freilassing, Germany) has an MA in Painting and Sculpture from the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich. She has enjoyed solo exhibitions at The Drawing Center, NY; the Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis, MO; and Smart Museum, Chicago. Her work has been included in recent group exhibitions at Hamburger Kunsthalle, Germany; Asia Culture Center, Gwangju; Contemporary Arts Center New Orleans, LA; Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt; and Marta Herford Museum for Art, Architecture, Design, Herford, Germany. Wieser’s work is collected by prominent institutions, including the Sammlung Goetz, Munich; Contemporary Art Collection of the Federal Republic of Germany; Deutsche Bundesbank Kunstsammlung, Frankfurt; Helaba Art Collection, Germany; DekaBank Art Collection, Germany; and Zabludowicz Collection, London. In July 2021, Wieser unveiled her first outdoor public installation at the Brooklyn Bridge Park, New York commissioned by Public Art Fund. In 2023, she presented work in collaboration with historic Yves Saint Laurent couture, designing a set within the Museé Yves Saint Laurent, Paris. Wieser lives and works in Berlin. She is represented by Jessica Silverman, San Francisco; Marianne Boesky Gallery, New York, and Sies + Höke, Düsseldorf.
