ABOUT THE HONOREES

Comp 38_80.jpg

Mary Ellen Carroll's prolific career as a conceptual artist spans more than twenty years and primarily occupies the disciplines of architecture/design and public policy, writing, performance and film. The foundation of the work is the investigation of a single, fundamental question: what do we consider a work of art? 

MEC is the recipient of numerous grants and honors, including the 2018 IASPIS Award by the Swedish Arts Grants Committee, the Guna S. Mundheim Fellowship in the Visual Arts at the American Academy in Berlin in 2016, and a Graham Foundation Fellowship for prototype 180. She has received a Guggenheim Fellowship, two Pollock/Krasner Awards, a Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship, a Rauschenberg Fellowship, and a MacDowell Colony Fellowship, among others. 

Her work has been exhibited at international institutions including the Perez Art Museum (Miami), Whitney Museum (New York), Generali Foundation (Vienna), Jacobs Museum (Zurich), Smart Museum (Chicago), ICA (Philadelphia), Arthur Ross Architecture Gallery at Columbia University (New York), Renaissance Society (Chicago), Busan Biennial (South Korea) ICA (London), Museum für Völkerkunde (Munich), MOMUK (Vienna), and at Storefront's gallery space. The work is in numerous public and private collections.

Lars Müller, born in Oslo in 1955 and a Norwegian citizen, has been based in Switzerland since 1963. After becoming a graphic designer in Zurich, extended travels, and a one-year assistant position with designer Wim Crouwel in Amsterdam, Müller established his studio in Baden/Switzerland in 1982. In 1983, Müller published his first book and, as Lars Müller Publishers, has produced some 600 titles to date.

Lars Müller is a passionate educator and has taught at various universities in Switzerland and in Europe. Since 2009 he has been a guest lecturer at Harvard University Graduate School of Design GSD. Müller frequently serves on academic and competition juries and is currently a member of the steering board of Design Preis Schweiz. From 2013 to 2015, Müller was the international president of AGI Alliance Graphique Internationale.

In 2011, Lars Müller started a new publication partnership with Storefront for Art and Architecture with the Manifesto Series followed by the OfficeUS trilogy.
