In conjunction with the 2019 Chicago Architecture Biennial, Carrie Secrist Gallery will be hosting a discussion between Dannielle Tegeder, and Tanner Woodford on November 23, from 2-4PM. This discussion will explore painting in the expanded field as it relates to questions of participation, authenticity, place, development and distribution. Questions considered may include: What are the historical implications of a narrowly defined creative act?, How can a broad-based approach to inclusive learning methodologies use art and architecture as structure? and, Who might benefit most - or least - from exposing the commodified nature of cultural consumption?

Dannielle Tegeder lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Recent solo exhibitions include H&R Block Artspace at the Kansas City Art Institute, the Montclair Art Museum, NJ and the Wellin Museum of Art, Hamilton, NY.

Her artwork is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and the Weatherspoon Museum of Art.

She is an Associate Professor of Art at the City University of New York at Lehman College.
