Katarina Burin: Contribution and Collaboration
Published by Koenig Books, Katarina Burin’s Petra Andrejova-Molnar project gives voice to female designers while questioning notions of authorship and authenticity, the relationship between gender and the archive, and the historical tension between national identity and internationalist aspirations. The book, an extension of the project, presents biographical narrative about the education and design work of Andrejova-Molnar, and positions her work in relation to mid-20th-century female architects Charlotte Perriand and Eileen Grey.
Katarina Burin’s recent solo projects include exhibitions at Kunstverein Langenhagen, Akademie Schloss Solitude (Stuttgart) and P! (New York), along with gallery exhibitions at Ratio 3 (San Francisco), M29 Richter & Brückner (Cologne) and Lucile Corty (Paris). She has participated in many group exhibitions including at the Institute of Contemporary Art Boston, Aspen Art Museum, Form/Content (London), White Columns (New York), Participant Inc. (New York) and Galerie Max Hetlzer (Berlin). She was the recipient of the 2013 James and Audrey Foster Prize from the ICA Boston.
In 2012, Burin co-curated the exhibition Brute at the Carpenter Center of Visual Arts. Burin was recently the recipient of the Schloss Solitude fellowship and a 2014 Graham Foundation publication grant. Earlier awards include a Dedalus Master of Fine Arts Fellowship as well as residencies at the MuseumsQuartier in Vienna, Skowhegan, Yaddo and MacDowell. She received her MFA from Yale University and her BFA from University of Georgia. She is a Lecturer in the Department of Visual and Environmental Studies.
