Tauba Auerbach’s work (b. 1981, San Francisco, California) contemplates structure and connectivity on the microscopic to the universal scale. Building on crafts in many disciplines, Auerbach often invents tools and techniques for inducing material behaviors. The artist’s hand is recognizable in work across a wide variety of media including painting, weaving, glass sculpture, photography, video, calligraphy and musical instrument design. In 2013, Auerbach founded Diagonal Press to formalize their ongoing typography and book-design practice. Auerbach’s work is included in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, and the Centre Pompidou, among others. In 2021, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art presented S v Z — a 17 year survey of Auerbach’s work. Exhibitions of their work have been presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Cleveland; the Institute of Contemporary Art, London; and Bergen Kunsthall in Norway, which traveled to venues in Sweden and Belgium. In 2018, the Public Art Fund organized Auerbach’s acclaimed public project, Flow Separation, in New York Harbor.
