Daniele Genadry Biography

Daniele Genadry works with various media to examine how distance, light and movement affect visual experiences. Her practice is focused around the relationship of painting and photography, and through it she considers the potential of an image to generate its own temporality (light), and how a mediated field of vision can sensitise our perception.

Genadry studied at Dartmouth College, NH and at the Slade School of Art, London. She is currently exhibiting in La Rochelle, France after completing a six month residency. Genadry has participated in residencies at the Bronx Museum, Anderson Ranch Art Center (USA), Fondazione Ratti (Italy), and Frans Masereel Centrum (Belgium). In 2013-14 she was the Abbey Scholar at the British School at Rome, and is currently a fellow at the Bogliasco Foundation (IT, 2019). She has previously exhibited at the Beirut Art Center, Sharjah Biennial 13, Biennial del Sur, Gypsum Gallery, Taymour Grahne Gallery, SMBA, Bronx Museum and Fondazione Pastificio Cerere. Genadry is an assistant professor of studio arts at the American University of Beirut.
