update

Was born in Remscheid, Germany in 1968 and later studied at Bournemouth and Poole College of Art from 1990 to 1992. Tillmans represents one of the most influential artists of his generation, achieving worldwide notoriety after winning in 2000 the Turner prize, the first photographer to achieve this award and the first non-English citizen. His subjects vary from portraits, to still life, to landscape, escaping a specific categorisation and at times approaching also abstract compositions. His works, often appearing spontaneous and improvisatory, are in fact meticulously planned. Tillmans has a very personal sense of beauty, which he seeks to uncover from the people, places and objects that surround him. His photographs are exhibited in the permanent collections of Tate Britain (London), Museum Kunstpalast (Düsseldorf), Sprengel Museum (Hannover) and Pinakothek der Moderne (München). He has had solo shows at Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2008), Hamburger Bahnhof, Museum für Gegenwart, Berlin (2008), Kunstverein München (2007), Kestner-Gesellschaft, Hannover (2007), Camera Austria, Graz (2007), PS1 Contemporary Art Center/MoMA, New York (2006) and his exhibition Wolfgang Tillmans, presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (2006), travelled to Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, Hirshhorn Museum, Washington D.C. (2007) and Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporanea, Mexico City (2008). His group shows include Form and Photo, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2009), Street & Studio, presented at Tate Modern, London (2008), travelled to Museum Folkwang, Essen, (2008), Städel Museum, Frankfurt (2008), Other People: Portraits from Grunwald and Hammer Collections, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2008), History in the Making: A Retrospective of the Turner Prize, Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, (2008), 50 Moons, Turin Triennial, Turin (2008), The Turner Prize: A Retrospective, Tate Britain, London (2007), Into Me / Out of Me, MACRO Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, Rome (2007), Depth of Field: Modern Photography at the Metropolitan, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (2007), The Secret Public: The last days of the British underground 1978 – 1988, Kunstverein München, Germany (2006); Institute of Contemporary Arts, London (2007).
