At Sadie Coles HQ this Spring, we will be exhibiting a new body paintings and coloured pencil drawings by Elizabeth Peyton. Peyton's solo survey exhibition Live Forever is currently at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota; touring internationally it began at the New Museum, New York, and will continue at the Whitechapel Art Gallery, London in July this year, and then to the Bonnefanten Museum, Maastricht, Holland. She also has an exhibition at the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) in Dublin, Reading and Writing, a show that brings together some of Peyton's literary-infused works which is on until June 2009. Recent group shows include The Painting of Modern Life at the Hayward Gallery, London, 2007, and Surprise, Surprise at the Institute of Contemporary Art, London, 2006. A catalogue accompanies the present show at IMMA and a monograph of her work, Elizabeth Peyton, was published by Rizzoli International Publications, 2005. She was born in 1964 and lives and works in New York.
