Ulrike Müller lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Her work mobilizes vocabularies of shape and color that are politically and emotionally charged and encourage figurative readings. Employing a wide range of materials and techniques, her practice moves between different contexts and publics, invites collaboration, and expands to other realms of production in processes of exploration and exchange. Alongside paintings in vitreous enamel, Müller produces expansive wall paintings, publications, prints, and textiles.
In 2022, Müller co-curated The Animal Within (with Manuela Ammer) at mumok in Vienna, for which she also created an expansive wall painting. Recent exhibitions and projects include The Conference of Animals (2020) a a large-scale mural commission at the Queens Museum, New York, or both, a solo survey exhibition at The Galleries at Moore College of Art & Design, Philadelphia (2019), and Container at the Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Düsseldorf (2018). Müllers work was included in the the International Art Exhibition at the 58th Venice Biennale (2019), the 57th Carnegie International (2018), and the 2017 Whitney Biennial, among others.
