Sue De Beer

For nearly 20 years, Sue de Beer has been searching for what she calls an “inhumanly beautiful moment,” a constantly surprising and staunchly punk mission, exactly because it seems to stand at odds with what is deemed “countercultural.”This is not to say that she does not take on weighty topics. Violence, religion, and love all find a place in her creative output.

De Beer is the Head of the Sculpture Area in NYU Steinhardt’s Art Department. She has exhibited her work nationally and internationally in such venues as the New Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, S1/MOMA, and the Brooklyn Museum in NewYork, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions in Los Angeles, the Reina Sofia in Madrid and many other venues in Europe. De Beer’s work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the New Museum for Contemporary Art, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Goetz Collection.
