San Francisco-born, New York-based artist Tauba Auerbach has described their work as an attempt to reveal “new spectral and dimensional richness…both within and beyond the limits of perception.” Engaging a variety of media, ranging from painting and photography to book design and musical performance, Auerbach explores the limits of our structures and systems of logic (linguistic, mathematical, spatial) and the points at which they break down and open up onto new visual and poetic possibilities.

Tauba Auerbach lives and works in New York City. Their work has been exhibited in a number of major museum shows, notably Oracle at The Broad (2017); the Museum of Modern Art's Ecstatic Alphabets/Heaps of Language (2012); the Walker Art Center’s Lifelike (2012); The Indiscipline of Painting at Tate St. Ives (2011-12); the 2010 Whitney Biennial; MoMA P.S.1’s Greater New York (2010) and the New Museum’s Younger Than Jesus (2009). In 2011 they received the Smithsonian Institution’s Artist Research Fellowship Award.
