About Tara Donovan

Tara Donovan (b. 1969, New York) creates sculpture, drawings, prints, and large-scale installations that transform the banality of everyday objects into the extraordinary. Known for her commitment to process, she has earned acclaim for her ability to discover the inherent physical characteristics of an object and for her exploration into the nature of accumulation. Donovan’s many accolades include the prestigious MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Award (2008) and the first annual Calder Prize (2005), among others. She has been the subject of several major solo exhibitions at museums including the Parrish Art Museum, Water Mill, New York (2015); Milwaukee Art Museum (2012); The Metropolitan Museum of Art (2007), UCLA Hammer Museum (2004), and Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. (1999). Donovan’s first European exhibition was presented in 2013 at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk, Denmark, and traveled to the Arp Museum Bahnhof, Rolandseck, Remagen, Germany. In September of 2018, her work will be presented in the solo exhibition Tara Donovan: Fieldwork at Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver. Pace has represented Donovan since 2005.
