For over thirty years Renée Levi has been questioning the medium of painting. She investigates colour, the application of paint, its body, and its space on various image carriers as well as in installations. She was born in Istanbul in 1960 and grew up in Aargau. Today she lives and works in Basel. After studying architecture at the HTL Muttenz/Basel, she studied at the Zurich School of Art and Design. In 1998 she started working together with Marcel Schmid as a studio partner. Recent solo exhibitions include at Villa du Parc (Annemasse, 2021); Musée d’Art, Histoire et Archéologie d’Évreux (2020); Biennale de Lyon (2019); Museum Langmatt (Baden, 2019); Istituto Svizzero Milan (2019) and at Galerie Freymond-Guth (Basel, 2017). In addition, the artist has been included in numerous group exhibitions, such as at MAMCO (Geneva, 2021); Öktem Aykut (Instanbul, 2020); Istituto Svizzero Rome (2019); Vin Vin (Vienna, 2018) or at Kunstverein Munich (2015). Renée Levi has received several awards, including the Prix de la Société des Arts de Genève, Arts Visuel, in 2019, or the Prix Meret Oppenheim in 2002. Since 2001, she has held a professorship in fine arts and painting at FHNW/HGK Basel.
