Genieve Figgis (b. 1972, Dublin, Ireland) received an MFA from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin in 2012; she currently lives and works in County Wicklow, IE. After exhibiting her work throughout the UK and Ireland, Figgis acquired an international following by means of her social media accounts, which attracted the attention of Richard Prince, among numerous other artists, collectors, and critics. As a result of this initial contact, Figgis exhibited at Harper’s, East Hampton in 2014 and 2016, followed by solo exhibitions at Half Gallery, New York; and Almine Rech, Brussels, London, New York, and Paris. Her work is held in collections including Aishti Foundation, Beirut; Bass Museum of Art, Miami; Consortium Museum, Dijon; Pérez Art Museum, Miami; and Smart Museum of Art, Chicago. Her first book, Making Love with the Devil, was published by Fulton Ryder in 2014. Figgis’s work has appeared in Artforum, The Brooklyn Rail, New York Times, and Vogue, among other publications.
