G Fine Art announces Interface, an exhibition of new work by Dan Steinhilber, on view at the gallery from March 19 through April 16, 2016.

The title, Interface, conjures up our society’s ever increasing interaction with screens, virtual reality, and the Internet. Reflecting on this cultural condition, Steinhilber, whose artistic practice involves aspects of painting, sculpture, and performance, foregrounds physical experience through a new series of work that he refers to as “Mobile Interface Sites”. The tactile nature of these penetratable inflatable works (made from plastic stretch wrap, wood, and computer fans) offers gallery visitors physical possibilities for spontaneity in the performative aspects of solitary and social being.

This is Dan Steinhilber’s third solo show at G Fine Art. He holds a BFA from the Institute of Art and Design in Milwaukee, WI and an MFA from American University in Washington, DC. Steinhilber’s work has been featured in exhibitions at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC; MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA; the Baltimore Museum of Art in Baltimore, MD; the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston in Houston, TX; the Des Moines Art Center in Des Moines, IA; the Contemporary Art Museum Raleigh in Raleigh, NC; the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, AR; the Kreeger Museum in Washington, DC; the Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY; the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto, Canada; the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh, PA; the Cheekwood Museum of Art in Memphis, TN; the Brigham Young University Museum of Art in Provo, UT; and the Baum Gallery of Fine Art at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway, AR. His work is included in numerous private collections, as well as in the permanent collections of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC; the Palazzo delle Papesse at the Centro Arte Contemporanea in Siena, Italy; the Rubell Family Collection in Miami, FL; and the Baltimore Museum of Art in Baltimore, MD.

Upcoming projects for Dan Steinhilber include the installation of a permanent outdoor sound sculpture at the new US Embassy in Laos in Spring 2016. Steinhilber lives and works in Washington, DC.
