This catalogue was published on the occasion of the exhibition Charline von Heyl: Now or Else, presented at Tate Liverpool, Liverpool, February 24 - May 27, 2012 and Kunsthalle Nürnberg, Nuremberg, July 11 - September 30, 2012.
New York-based artist Charline von Heyl’s (born 1960) abstract paintings, in which dynamic forms enfold graphic structures and dazzling colors encounter muted shades, vibrate with tension. Now or Else offers an in-depth view of her oeuvre, focusing on works from the mid-1990s and a selection of current works on paper.
The catalogue contains the following essays:
"Sieben Kapitel über, Charline von Heyl" by Kirsty Bell
"Charline von Heyl: Das Streben nach Unordnung" by Gavin Delahunty
