Roni Horn

For nearly four decades, Roni Horn has used art to explore issues of identity, gender, and location. Much of her work, which ranges from striking photographic portraits to text, abstract cast-glass sculptures, and photographs of bodies of water, is inspired by the landscape of isolation of Iceland. Born in New York in 1955, Horn received her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and her MFA from Yale University. Her first solo exhibition, in 1980, was at the Kunstraum München in Germany. Since then, Horn has had solo exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles (1990), the Art Institute of Chicago (2004), and Dia Center for the Arts in New York (2001).

In November 2009, the Whitney Museum of American Art hosted Roni Horn aka Roni Horn, a survey show of Horn’s career, for which Lannan Foundation provided funding. The show traveled to the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; the Tate Modern, London; and the Collection Lambert, Avignon. In 2017 an installation of Horn’s massive cast-glass sculptures was presented at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, Texas. Horn’s Still Water (The River Thames for Example), 1999, will be featured in Lannan’s 2017 exhibition Something Fierce. The artist currently lives and works in New York and Reykjavik, Iceland.
