Theseus Temple - Kathleen Ryan: Bacchante

Continuing the series of contemporary art exhibitions at the Theseus Temple, this year Kunsthistorisches Museum presents Bacchante, a new commission by the young American sculptor Kathleen Ryan. This is Ryan’s first museum exhibition.
Kathleen Ryan was born in Santa Monica, California, in 1984. She studied archaeology and art as an undergraduate at Pitzer College, and graduated in 2014 from the prestigious Master of Fine Arts programme at UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles). Her teachers there included the artists Charles Ray and Catherine Opie. She has had solo exhibitions at Josh Lilley, London, and Ghebaly Gallery, Los Angeles, and was selected for the Frieze Sculpture Park in London and the 71st Scripps Ceramics Annual, the longest continuous exhibition of ceramics in the United States. Ryan currently lives and works between Los Angeles and New York.
 
The exhibition will be on view until October 1, 2017
