Elizabeth Peyton was born in Connecticut in 1965 and currently lives and works in New York. In 1993, she had her first solo show in New York in room 828 in the Hotel Chelsea and has since been the subject of exhibitions at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, the Museum für Gegenwartskunst in Basel, Deichtorhallen in Hamburg, and the Royal Academy in London. Her mid-career survey “Live Forever” opened at the New Museum in New York, traveled to the Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis, The Whitechapel Art Gallery in London, and is currently on view at the Bonnefantenmuseum in Maastricht. She has also been included in numerous group exhibitions around the world including “Campo” at the 1995 Venice Biennale, “Greater New York” at PS1 in 2000, “Cher Pientre, Lieber Maler, Dear Painter” at the Centre Pompidou in 2002, the 2004 Whitney Biennial, and “The Painting of Modern Life” at the Hayward Gallery in London in 2007.
