Marlie Mul is an artist whose artwork manifests somewhere in between sculpture, painting, fashion, distribution, writing, experiments in branding, the social, and the virtual. She teaches in and co-coordinates the MFA WorkMaster at HEAD (Haute école d’art et de design) in Geneva, Switzerland.
With Harry Burke, she co-edits ground, a counter-institutional fanzine that sets out to look beyond institutions in their current form as dominant frameworks for artistic production, and embraces grassroots political and aesthetic perspectives. In 2018 she published the book CANCELLED, which revolves around her public cancellation of a solo exhibition at GoMa, an art institution in Scotland, in 2017.
Marlie Mul’s work has been shown in group exhibitions such as: The 33rd Biennial of Graphic Arts 2019, Ljubljana; ZHDK, Zurich; Istituto Svizzero, Rome; 49 Nord 6 Est–FRAC Lorraine, Metz; La Panacée, Montpellier; Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna; Kunsthalle Bern; Fridericianum, Kassel; 9th Berlin Biennial; 2014 Taipei Biennial; Swiss Institute, New York; Witte de With, Rotterdam; ICA/Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; Sculpture Center, New York, Ballroom Marfa, Texas.
