About Jim Dine

American, b. 1935

Since the 1950s, Jim Dine’s expansive multimedia practice has spanned painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, photography, poetry, and performance. Dine was a pioneering member of the Happenings movement alongside artists such as Claes Oldenburg and Allan Kaprow, staging experimental live performances throughout mid-century New York City. His practice later crossed into art movements including Neo-Dada, Pop, and Neo-Expressionism. Throughout his varied oeuvre, Dine embraced idiosyncratic expressions of autobiographical details; personal totems, such as hearts and robes, became frequent motifs. The artist has exhibited in New York, London, Paris, Berlin, Stockholm, Brussels, and Los Angeles. His work regularly sells for six figures on the secondary market and belongs in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Centre Pompidou, the Museum of Modern Art, the Tate, the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
